    I wish dorm bed wouldn’t cost like hotel room, but it’s a high season I guess. Excellent friendly, clean and cozy hostel with super friendly staff 💗

    Facilities were pretty average, vibe was either kinda weird or non existent. Place would be much improved with a few hammocks or comfortable places to chill as there’s not much in the way of that beyond a few picnic benches and a small pool that was being emptied to clean on the day I was there. Dorm rooms get pretty hot during the day as there’s no fans, but they kick the AC on around 7 so then they’re fine.

    This has to be the worst hostel I have stayed at. I was initially assigned a bed that was literally had a stains. When I brought it the attention of staff they told me to take another bed. Fair enough it happens but when later in the night I came back ALL MY STUFF FROM THE CLEAN BED WAS PUT ON THE FLOOR. The hostel staff had given my bed to someone else because obviously no one wants to sleep in a stained bed. Because it was 2 in the morning I was forced to sleep there. I didn't even get refund.

    The hostel was very dirty and very expensive for a room that is clearly not maintained, doesn’t have much security, and has staff that will walk into the room with no explanation at any given time. The general vibe of the hostel for a lack better words “doesn’t exist”. For the price that this place charges, I am very disappointed that this is even seen as a fair exchange of goods and services.
