  • Loved that the hostel provides beach towels, snorkeling gear, etc. at no cost. Didn't like that we had to pay for a bag storage after check-out. I think it should be opposite - makes more sense to charge a little fee (or a deposit) for towels, chairs, etc. and not charge for the bag storage as the bag storage is just a room, while towels and other gear cost money and need to be washed/cleaned regularly. We traveled the world for 6 mo and this is the only hostel we had to pay for the bag storage.

  • The hostel staff were all very nice and accommodating; I didn't run into anybody (staff or guests) that were unpleasant. Bathrooms are clean, had hot water. They offer free-to-use beach gear as well! Note of caution: there is no air conditioning, just fans! Nothing against the hostel, obviously. I knew this when I booked. Thankfully I come from a similar climate so all was well, but some people may not find it bearable.

  • I have stayed 4 nights and was very happy, i refused to pay the way overpriced hotels nearby. Staff was very friendly and helpful the place is very clean and very secure. The private room is very basic but has everythig you need, small bathroom, hangers, a chair, hooks and not to forget the most important: a fan! Will definitly stay there again!

  • My friend and I stayed in a private room with bunk beds, it worked great for us. It would have been nice to have a little table in the room, there were 2 chairs tho. We like to read and it would have been nice to be able to sit at a table to do it and to set things on. We were really glad there was a fan in the room as it was very hot, overall a great experience.

  • Be aware lock your stuff, I got my shoes stolen (nice heels) Cant trust anyone. In addition they do there bed selection by pen and paper, most hotels have a software computer for that. This place was ok.

  • The lack of actual doors in front of the rooms is incredibly frustrating on noisy and cold nights, as well as make it hard to block out the light when in bottom bunks. They only have mesh screen-doors and louvres which make the rooms very cold at night during the winter months. Staff are very friendly, lots of space, nice and quiet hostel with a friendly atmosphere.
