    Not what I booked

    I booked 2 double queen beds but when i arrived they said it wasn't available. They tried to put me in a room with 2 bunk beds but I told them i needed a big bed. I ended up in a room with a double bed and bunk beds. Unfortunately still had to pay the same price.

    Great spot to stay

    Despite the fact that I was in a 10-bed dorm my room was very comfortable quiet and had great air conditioning. The walls can be thin so ear plugs are suggested. Staff are all friendly and funny. The kitchen area is decently equipped and usually pretty busy so make sure you label your stuff.

    Great vibe and cool place to stay. People are friendly and loved the live music every night. Bar is one of the popular hang out spots at night.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    This was a very nice hostel centrally located near amenities and 5 minute walk to the beach. Staff was incredible and the pool area was relaxing. I loved the live music almost every night and the food at the restaurant was very tasty.

  • 4.0.Fair

    If ur looking for something clean, safe and quick then id keep on looking. I didnt even bring my liggage in from my truck out of a cleanliness concern. I went and bought blankets to put over there bedding and left it behind becauaw i didnt want to contaminate anything of mine. Theres no hot water to shower in and i lived in flip flops for the 12 hours of my time there aswell as left the worn clothing behind. I do not recommend this place for anyone who cares about clenliness and hygine.
