I really liked the place. Helpful staff, the hostel is surrounded by beautiful nature and I felt very safe. The place is also quiet and perfect to relax and calm down 😊 it’s smart to take your own food with you

The location is exactly how it is described and is in the jungle! We saw many animals just from our tent! The property is also right onto the beach which is ideal for relaxing. We were the only ones staying in the hostel which was a little unnerving at times, the hostel is also set back from the other properties. The walk at night was through complete darkness which could be scary at times. Staff were particularly unhelpful when it came to tours and transport! Book tours in advance of coming!
