    Teva is one of my favorite places in the world! It’s so serene and the staff are amazing, I barely even want to leave the hostel to visit the beach. The facilities are always impeccably clean and the staff will always go above and beyond to make sure you are having the best experience. I can’t wait for my next trip back.

    Teva is a very professional hostel/hotel. Was in a female dorm, 4 pers. Room was a bit tight but we made it work. Plugs and big locker for every bed, which is great. Bathrooms and toilets were super clean and everything was really very secure. You never had to worry about anything. Pool is super nice. Restaurant on the place is also good and had ladies night twice in a week, were women got free drinks for a couple of hours. Staff very friendly and helpful. Only neg: restaurant is too expensive.

    Very nice, new property. More resort than hostel; the 4-bed dorm I was in was clean and had lockers and enough space for everyone's things. I was able to leave my bag in the office all day after checkout and shower when I returned from activities. My only "complaint" is that the shower I used in shared bathroom leaked a puddle of water into the dressing area so my bag on the floor got wet; there was a stream all the way out under the door as well. Overall very nice facilities for the price.

    Great atmosphere and clean rooms with cute added touches with the towels and flowers 🌷 Food was ok, too expensive for the amount you get in comparison to other places in my opinion. Happy hour - great! Staff - great! We loved our time here :) the pool was wonderful to chill by as well

    Pros: -Public areas and rooms were really clean. -Enough showers and toilets. -The staff was helpful and nice. Cons: -No possibilities to prepare own breakfast. -The staff didn't react to a girl puking at the bar desk for at least an hour next to the pool in the middle of the day.

    Enjoyed our stay here, staff were helpful & friendly, WiFi was good, showers hot & powerful, pool & restaurant/bar was clean. The main thing that let this place down is location.On a map it is close to town but you have to walk up a big hill to get there which is difficult in the humid heat. Due to it being slightly secluded,you eat at the restaurant which is SO expensive for mediocre meal &for what you get. They don’t have a kitchen so can’t cook yourself, if they did I would have rated higher

    Very Good

    The place itself was great with a nice pool and bathrooms. The location was a bit rough it’s about a 10 minute walk up hill to the bus stop with not lots of food options nearby. This place is actually a hotel with one hostel room so there is no atmosphere in terms of meeting other travelers. The bedroom situation is rough to say the least. They list air con but there is non in the hostel room. Also the mattresses are plastic & don’t breath to the point of the room becoming unbearably hot

    Very disappointed in teva. I stayed 3 nights and was looking to do the night tour. They cancelled twice so I stayed an extra night for the tour as they guaranteed it would run. Tour did not run. They issued my money back for the tour but nothing for the extra night I stay. Tried to get dinner at the restaurant at the hostel at 7:50pm was told it closed at 8pm but I was able to get dinner as it’s s**t down. Staff were not sympathetic at all. Management were nowhere to address my issues.
