    Great hostel, with lovely facilities and chill out areas. All staff were very friendly and helpful. Super close to the beach, supermarkets and cafes. This is a out there Christian hostel with a bible given on arrival, that being said it doesn’t make a difference if you keep an open mind, our stay was memorable, lots of smiles!

    The owners and volunteers are extremely enthusiastic and happy to help if you need it. Location is great close to bus station and attractions. They will give you a bible but you won't be forced to listen to any sermons or diatribes or anything. Nice people and nice rooms.

    I stayed one night only but I liked the place: nice, warm and cozy with lots of activities. The staff were also kind and helpful. The only downside: no lockers.

    Friendly staff, great breakfast for 10NLS, ideal for meeting other travellers due to its great layout. Only downside is the mattresses aren't the best, but I really shouldn't complain for the price!

    Staff were pleasant and helpful, they stayed after check on time to accommodate my delayed flight and made sure I was comfortable. This is a very basic but comfortable accommodation, with all you need for a nights rest.

    The staff was super friendly and there is a great atmosphere. it’s a nice relaxed place to hang out. You should note that this is a Christian place, very Christian. Bible studies and hymn singing and all. while the common areas are pretty nice, the dorms are very simple. There are no lockers, reading lights or places to put ones luggage. Since the top bunks don’t have a railing, everybody is scared to fall down and people are fighting over the bottom bunks as soon as somebody moves out

    I think it is very important to realize that this is a Christian hostel. I am not sure why they don't advertise it as such. The staff were nice and didn't try to push religion onto me other than giving me a Bible. However, some of the guests were very intense with their religious beliefs and made me feel quite uncomfortable given the fact that I am not religious. Because of this, even though it is in a nice location and with decent enough facilities, I would not stay there again.
