    Awesome spot near the beach! I felt that the staff members were either super friendly and approachable or the other extreme- super rigid with rules, not friendly, or even engaged in conversation. Also the cameras literally in every corner was odd... and excessive... monitoring your staff and guests on the grounds so closely is obnoxious and intrusive in my opinion. Besides that, this spot was great! So many cool guests that I met, and a really nice and comfortable space.

    The hostel is nice and staff is great, however you have to know one important thing: in each room AC runs and cannot be turned off completely. Since rooms are not that big, it'll become very cold at night. They have blankets which are warm, but still something to think about. Activities are fun go for it, but don't trust staff cooking skills, burger night was a rather bad experience, better to dine out or take away some food, plenty of options nearby.
