  • Informative and friendly staff! I staid at a 6 person dorm, and the facilities were fine. Lockers were available. Relaxing and clean courtyard and small pool, where you can socialize and meet other travelers!

  • The dorm rooms were a touch cramped but other than that everything was fantastic, including the welcome drink :)

  • This had a great location, we used the kitchen area and it was adequate for our needs. This was the first hostel I stayed in where I paid extra for an ensuite bathroom and was not given towels. They were for rent but felt the price of the room warranted the free use of towels. Food was good… had the buffet one morning and it was quite tasty.

  • One of the best places i have stayed! Tours they offered are a bit too expensive but the location will help you find other options

  • Beautiful, organized, clean &, lovely Diego greeted us & was super helpful during our stay. We appreciated being able to leave an envelope of valuables in the office safe each day while we were out. The common areas & room were both far above par for a hostel in my opinion: clean and spacious. Linens provided (towels upon request). There is a great buffet for a charge, and a kitchen with fridge to store items. Night security will buzz you in after 11pm, and keep it quiet for sleep.

  • I was worried this was going to be a party resort when we arrived just from the looks of everything, but it was a nice quiet location. They do have a bar, but it closes at 10 p.m. The staff was friendly and accommodating.
