    I really enjoyed my stay at Villa Eshta. Great location, next to a 24 hours pharmacy, T5 bus stop & laundromat (both less than 1 minute walk from the hostel), several restaurants & the beach. On this trip, I introduced my mom & Aunt to the hostel experience with a private apartment. Loved the minimalistic design of the apartment and it had everything we needed for our stay. Chris and Felipe working at reception desk were very helpful and made my mom & Aunt feel very welcomed.

    This was my first time staying at a hostel, I shared one of the private rooms with my sibling and I felt like it was a comfortable, clean, safe, and welcoming place to stay.

    This location perfect abode was perfect for me. It was what I had hoped for. Early or late I could leave my room for the comforts and security of the courtyard. As a budding writer, I needed an conducive environment to spark my creativity and it proved itself again and again. I spent 10 days there and could go and come as I wished. I was fortunate enough to meet the owner and witness his vision in updating the facilities. Of all the hostels I've stayed it rates tops, esp the staff.

    I have some mixed feelings about the hostel. The staff were friendly, but it was a huge pain getting the bookings right (my rooms kept getting cancelled and I kept on needing to call them directly to get the bookings back, or re-book). And the final charges were mysteriously more than what was promised to be charged on the website - not by a ton, but the numbers don't add up right. Hard to coordinate groups - solo travel recommended if you're staying here, and double check charges before paying

    Stayed there for one night at a dorm with my gf(we took two beds). The receptionist told us that couples could call and let them know to share one bed. We took that as a tip for the future. Flight got cancelled last minute. Wanted to follow up with them regarding what they said about couples sharing one bed since we had no money left. Managed to book one bed for me. Asked them if we could share. Instead the person cancelled my reservation without telling me. Was stranded and had nowhere to stay.
