Morgan super friendly and helpful with onwards travel advice. Outside areas are really nice with hammocks but could do with some more relaxed covered areas as it rains… a lot. Heated pool was nice but beds were pretty shoddy and wobbly

Great location, bed was comfy but moved a lot (I was a top bunk so wrestlers night). Main downfall is nothing dried, even my swimsuit; place was very damp!

It honestly feels more like a hotel complex that has some dorm rooms rather than a hostel. It’s two complexes that are located a few houses apart right by the main square and you can enter both regardless where your room is. Both complexes have a (heated!) pool and a bar that serves right into the pool and a kitchen to use and one has a restaurant as well that serves breakfast. You get a welcome drink, there are plenty of hammocks and other chilling areas and the staff, especially the owner is super helpful and wants to make sure you’re having the best time. All rooms have AC, both our private and the dorm had an en-suite bathroom and the dorms have lockers. They also offer tours if you’re interested.
