    We had the most outstanding 3 days at this amazingly tranquil and peaceful hostel with a kick. It was clean, open, beautiful scenery and the people were even better (Marco). You would be a fool not to stay here.

    Easily one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Do not miss this gem. Excellent staff - extremely helpful and welcoming. Gorgeous property with super clean, top-notch facilities. A wonderful environment to chill out and meet great people. Plus the breakfast is fantastic. Can't say a bad thing about it except that it was very hard to leave this little oasis. Thanks for a brilliant stay, I will miss you guys!

    Probably the best hostel I ever stayed. When I booked I was a little suspicious about this hostel that everybody found so amazing, but as soon as I arrived I instantly agreed with all the reviews. They have this amazing atmosphere, everything was so clean and organized, Marcos and the staff are really kind and will make everything to make you feel confortable. The only thing is that the hostel is not that close to the beach, but it's not really a problem: the area is and safe and you canusebike

    Our 3-night stay in Timbuktu hostel was overall good but we had few bad surprises. We had to pay 12 euro more than was expected and we had to pay for towels which should be included. Everything in the hostel is new and clean but we didn't feel friendly atmosphere here like in the other places during our road. A little impersonal attitude, that's all.
