    The hostel is in a great location, above a supermarket and close to the beach. There are lots of instruments available to play with if you're interested in that. the owner is an excellent guitar player. It was a very relaxed atmosphere, everyone was friendly, the beds were comfortable. I'd definitely stay here again.

    The hostel is very nice! Our plan was to stay for 4 nights, but at the end we stayed for 9 nights. The owner is super friendly and every night the staff are making music, so you can listen to life music or join them every evening. The hostel is very clean and the kitchen good. I only missed a couch or some hammocks to chill. But the rest was very nice!

    Really fun hostel for musicians, and everyone I met there, including staff, was very friendly. If you’re a guitarist who has been traveling without your instrument and you have the urge to play, or you just like listening to people jam, Slow Monkey is a fun place to go. Be warned that it gets really hot at night without AC and the dorm beds are pretty short.

    Very Good

    Stay elsewhere unless only place available. They tried to overcharge me c5000 - they gave it back to me when I showed them my HW receipt (hard to think that’s an accident though), they charged everyone in the room VERY different amounts, supppper hot room, there’s no comfortable seating to relax (one bean bag chair), the water turned off in the night and diarrhea was in toilet and could not wash my face in the morning & the pool is a hot tub-sized and empty on weekend. Better vibes elsewhere.

    Stayed in hostels for the same price and saw a huge difference in cleanliness, facilities and location. I think there are many other hostels in the area that are worth checking out. Just wasn’t worth the price I paid.
