Our room was lovely and well cared for. It was clean and comfortable. The beds were very comfortable. Our location on the ground floor didn't offer any view of anything. We found this Hotel to be quite expensive including the restaurants there. The beach is...More

Positives for this place - it is close to the ADO bus terminal. That's where they end. Service is cold and abrupt, rooms have changed from the photos. Small bed with small pillows. Comfortable enough if in transit but would not recommend it beyond that....More

This is Mike, the owner you mentioned. Please do not return to this hostel as the new management actually stole the business. Tell your son I said what's up

My boyfriend and I was staying at the hostel in their 10 person dorm yesterday and it was AWFUL. We knew we booked a cheap hostel, but this hostel was the most dirty place we've ever been too. There was dirt and insects everywhere, the...More
