  • Jose at the front desk was very helpful. He helped me get a good deal on the island tour. They also organize free bbqs from time to time. I found the food to be quite good. Overall I found the hostel to be quite decent. I'd definitely recommend it.

  • I can't understand why this hostel is so highly recommended. The room was mit very clean and especially the bathroom was disgusting: dust and dirt in every corner and mold in the shower. The cleaning lady was obviously only responsible for the toilett and the trash. The staff mixed up our booking so that we had to sleep in seperate rooms. Breakfast is basic. i have been in a lot of hostels but this one was rather poor. The atmosphere was good though.

  • Excellent location. Each room came with its own attached bath. That was nice. It was clean enough. Rooms had lockers for each person. Hostel was run by young folks. Nice get-together area on the terrace.

  • The location of the hostel is very good, but I stayed 1 week at this hostel and I never saw anyone cleaning anything. I had a 1 1/2 foot tall bright green mushroom growing from the bathroom cabinet, the floor was full of sand, shower was very dirty with molds and old shampoo on the walls. kitchen was very dirty as well, with old food in fridge and on counter, fruit flies everywhere. I traveled around the world and this is the worst hostel I ever stayed in. I would never recommend this hostel.

    Aloha First of all, we are very sorry about your experience. We do have daily cleaning service for all guest rooms. Due to high demand, we had to change the employee room to guest room in Dec and, it was transition period when you stayed with us. We just renovated the bathroom for the room you stayed, deep cleaning and open for guests room with same condition of other guest room. Again, We are very sorry for the inconvenience, hope that we can accommodate you again in the future. Mahalo.

  • This is the greatest place to stay. Stuff was really friendly, helpful. We went together to many hikes and to the most beautiful secret beaches. We had barbeque and pizza nights for free :-) and went out every night to have party. I was here for 2months and after my first week i decided to stay here for the whole time. Rooms are clean and nice, with own shower, but what i really loved is the terrace upstairs, we had so many good nights there, sometimes guys played on gitar and sang :-)
