  • Rooms were obviously old jail cells. Blank empty and so loud you could here people pissing in the toilets all the way across the facility. Staff was uninterested and seemed to employ local thieves to do their dirty work. Watch your back here:) closely! Over priced diner and no kitchen as other option.

  • All of the staff was great except one guy with no customer service skills. I thought that he did not speak English because he would not speak but found out later that he was just not interested in talking.

  • Looks and feels like Alcatraz. Definitly was a prison before. Has no shared rooms to relax, eat and drink your own stuff. There is a room but you need to buy and drink the stuff of the hostel (there is an expensive bar attached to it, the burgers are ok).

  • I've been to much more welcoming places all over the country. Staff not very willing/knowledgeable to provide information if you're not planning to buy a tour from them. The loud music in the bar makes conversations near impossible. Bring good earplugs as the bar is adjacent to most rooms and you'll hear it until very late. Food is very good but 8 dollars for a simple breakfast with pancakes, fruit and tea is way too much. Location is very convenient for the caribbean bus stations.
