LUCIA!!! She works really hard and she...

A great place to stay meet people and spend a few nights. There is free wifi a shared kitchen but only about 4 or 5 rooms. If you want to get away relax at a no pressure Beach and just unwind check out this place

I didn't like this hostel at all. The only things I liked about it were the hammocks, the big friendly dog and the sound of the sea. I called this hostel and I understood it was seven a night for sleeping in a tent of them. So I thought it was seven dollars a night. At the moment of paying...

We stayed in a dorm room, although we were the only two staying at the time so had it to ourselves. The room itself is quite run down and basic, but has all that you need. The AC works great too. A few ants in the bathroom but not too much to worry about. The kitchen area is very well...

The home-owners (this is not a hostel) are very friendly but this is the only positive note, unfortunately (and it's close proximity to the beach). They advertised Free Breakfast and during our 3 day/night stay we were never offered breakfast. The maid was very sweet but not once did she come and clean our room. Our bathroom was infested with...

I spend couple of days in Congo's. Owners were really sweet and helpful, room was basic with bunk beds, but clean with big bathroom. There was a fresh cofee all day long + something for a breakfast. It's 1-2minutes walking from beach and the same distance to grocery store or diving schools. There is really nice garden with hammocks, huge...
