  • Very relaxed atmosphere. The bathrooms and showers are clean. There is a nice kitchen type setup that is great for making your own food. At night it can get a little loud if you're trying to sleep, but it's because everyone gathers together-which means it's very easy to meet people and has a "family" vibe. The location is awesome, there are plenty of trees, grass and hammocks to enjoy. I would definitely recommend this hostel!

  • I had a relaxing experience during my 3 night stay. Showers are clean and the facility is organized. I felt a bit out of place because so many people stay for so long and already created their clicks of friends. Receptionist was nice and helpful but can be easily ticked off if he is bothered during his siesta which is like 75 percent of the time.

    Working 220 days during the season without a day off from 7am to 1pm and from 5:30 pm to 8pm (often much later until midnight) I guess I have deserved a siesta in the afternoon which is a part of mediterranean culture.
