  • They have 4 very old bikes you can borrow for free to ride into town, which is 5 to 10 minutes by bike, 25 minute walk. A taxi into town is about 5$. A beautiful, secluded beach is within easy walking distance. Room, air condition, and beds were clean/adequate. Bathrooms were clean, but shower curtain had mildew on it. Warning, about 10 roosters live across the street and crow often and early. Francesca, Evan, and Brian were great, knowledgeable, and just fun! Great deal for the price.

  • Great, friendly staff! Loved the pool and the pets. a/c worked great. A bit of a walk to town but the bikes helped. The only problem was that the Hostel rate for a private room was confusing. The rate was not billed "per bed" as stated. Rate was "per person" which effectively doubled the room rate. Owner did provide adjustment when brought to her attention.
