I found this place dont even know how. But it was the best what could have happened to me. What a nice place, right at the beach, restaurant and bar downstairs. All staff was really helpful and friendly, just amazing.

I really liked my stay here. I got a private room with fan for a price I found more than reasonable. The bed looked weird but it was definitely confortable. Loved the details on the walls all around the hostel and the staff is really helpful and friendly and pointed us always in the right direction. The hostel is right...

The highlight of my time spent at The Lazy Mon was at the restaurant and bar, playing ping pong, enjoying the live beachfront music, and fully embracing happy hour 2 for 1 drinks. The music plays late into the night providing a place for young travelers and locals to mingle and party. The music did play late into the night....

This hostel is located on the second floor of the noisiest bar in southern caribbean coast. The musical is so loud than the vibrations of the bass boost alone can maintain you awake. Their catchphrase, "beach, party, sleep, repeat" is well chosen: don't go if you plan to do anything else. The bar will decide for you when you will...

Had a rather grim experience here. I was battered by bed bugs, the dorm was boiling hot with no fans and the showers were unpleasant and dirty. I would avoid staying here. Worth walking sightly further to find somewhere cleaner.

The location was great, in the middle of town and had a cool bar downstares with lifemusic every evening. The problem was that the owner or staff wasnt around all the time and reception just opend after 10am, which was too late for us. The atmosphare was chilled but wired, The rooms are big and nice.
