It was one of the most incredible hospitality experiences. You truly feel so welcomed and as if you arrived home. Every single member of the staff were amazing, attentive, helpful and made me feel safe at all times. I wish I could of stayed more than 3 nights, will come back one day. Keia is an angel on earth. Going to miss being here so much.

Beach Paradise
Found this little gem last minute and it was way better than I anticipated. Very small/quant and extremely relaxing location. It's a relatively small property but they did a fantastic job with the shipping container conversion to the rooms, the outdoor gym, outdoor bathrooms + showers, pool in the middle of the property, etc.

Fair 4.0
Checked in but didn't stay. Not a good vibe.
We checked in but did not stay the night. As two female travellers we felt uncomfortable staying here. We were unable to go into our intended room as the cleaners son had thrown up in there but we were quickly moved to another room. There are communal showers and toilets. The showers are dimly lit and there are no doors so we felt uncomfortable showering. There were a lot of work men around also, hanging around the shower and toilet block. And then we found several hairs and stains in our bed. When we left at 8-9pm there was only security there who offered to move us into a new room but we declined. The hostel also promotes DMT and their own type of therapy, which is fine if you are into that but I think it's good to know what you are walking into.

Péssimo atendimento, ética duvidosa, mas bom local
Postaram um quarto com fotos de suite (com banheiro) e fiz a reserva paga antecipadamente. Quando cheguei me deram um quarto sem banheiro e, para o quarto com banheiro, queriam me cobrar uma diferença que era o que já havia pago, ou seja o dobro!!! Reclamei na e resolveram o problema! Parabéns para! Excelente atendimento ao cliente!
