The tipi was a delight! Thank you again to Agostina who helped me update my booking from a tent to a tipi as I couldn’t change with the website. Great location, super clean toilets/showers. I missed the hostel activities (arrived too late on Sunday, noting on the Monday and Tuesday’s was in the evening when I was packing) but saw loads of people hanging out in the common areas. I didn’t have breakfast because I’m gluten free but everyone seemed to enjoy it. Only comment is that you might be better off booking tours through Tribu if you want to do excursions with other backpackers.

Teepees were a novelty, but maybe a little expensive compared to alternatives on the island for what it was. Staff were very helpful and friendly, plus a basic breakfast is nice. No AC but there is a fan, also no hot water in outdoor showers (not necessary a bad thing in the heat or after the beach). Didn’t spend too much time around the hostel, but seemed like a social atmosphere with daily activities and recommendations.

We stayed in a tent, which was quite comfy and fit for purpose. Bathrooms and showers were not clean, and there was no hot water during our stay… but that’s island life maybe? The staff was super friendly and happy to help. Good breakfast, too!!
