In my room (room 1) there was mold on the walls and door (which they blame on the bed ventilation system(which is a tiny window at the pathway for all... More

This hostel has a really laid back vibe, the staff seem to get on with each other which sets a friendly atmosphere. We got a free shuttle from the greyhound bus stop which was a life savour considering how heavy our backpacks were. We had a 6 bed dorm but the second night there was only one other person aside...

Had one night in this Hostel in a 2 BR Apartment! Unfortunately the room wasn't clean at all...well for just one night we arranged everything and at least we got some sleep. Walking to the beach and the beach itself was just wonderful. The guys at the reception were very helpful...

We booked one of their older rooms. Nothing flash. though good sized, clean and OK beds, looked at their newer, much more expensive queen rooms and felt there was little difference, Good communal kitchen and great communal chill rooms and dining area set on the palm fringed verandah. Good vibe to the place.

Good facilities, clean, ensuite rooms, I paid for a dorm room but had the whole room to myself for 3 nights in a row which was good. It's very close to the beach. Kitchen is fine and there's a pool and free WiFi, free breakfast and they pick up from the greyhound bus. Only downside is it's quite quiet its... More
