I would have loved to stay here for longer. Relaxed atmosphere, enough space for everyone and awesome staff, that's the recipe for a good hostel. The combination of hammocks and free wifi... perfect after being on the road for days! I usually don't like hostels with a bar because they're just too noisy and I don't want to party 7...

Location is excellent, minutes from a large beach where you are allowed to make a fire in the evenings.. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was basic, but...

Nice enough hostel but the rooms were small and not very clean. The bathrooms were usually in a state but that was due to the other guests and the owners did clean them daily. Not a hostel to stay in if you like peace and quiet, becomes quite lively and noisy in the evenings. It was fine for where it...

the place is dirty, the stuff doesn't care about You, the pool is old and looks horrible... It maybe good for very young people who do not care where and with whom they sleep... I didn't lake it at all.
