    Hello, I was wondering if I can move in for a couple of years? I may decide to bring in my children as well, should I end up having kids.

    Hey there Juan & Jennifer :) I was wondering - since you don't offer hot showers and restrict time under shower up until 10 min - does the time limitation applies to couples too - just cause we might need a bit more time to make the shower hot? Also how much does it cost to Rent-a-Shaggy as a safety net for the streets of San Andres? Love, peace & pancakes from Croatia

    Will you disturb me if I fall asleep somewhere that isn't my bed (showers/ common area couch/ someone else's bed/ kitchen floor) after drunken night out? If okay, what is your policy on how long I can sleep there the next day?

    Only if you fall asleep on Shaggys bed. That's a NoGo. You can sleep anywhere until the hostel band starts practicing at 6am. ;)
