Staff were nice but I didn't like how beers at bar cost 22Q or if you bring in your own beers they charge 15Q per bottle or 100Q for a bottle of wine. It's just a bit stingy and not hostel vibe I like, means people don't really socialise in common areas. I'd like the ability to bring in a six pack and have chill beers on my own terms. That is what hostels should be. 22Q is silly.Showers have no privacy, pain in the arse to shower, toilets are very small, breakfast is quite nice. Towels cost 25

The staff were lovely and the facilities were very clean and spacious. Breakfast was delicious and the overall vibe was chill. Only downfall is that we stayed in a private room for one night which backed onto the main courtyard where there bar is and where people have breakfast and wait for their early morning shuttles so it was very loud. The music came on at 7:15am and didn’t go off until about 10:30pm (we stayed on a Thursday night but it may go later on the weekends as there is no curfew)

The nicest hostel I’ve ever stayed in! We booked two private rooms that shared a private bathroom and it was like staying in a hotel. Very clean, great location and quiet past 10pm. Staff was super accommodating and kind. We were able to leave our luggage on our last day while we hiked a volcano and then they let us use the community showers when we returned.
