Ocean Blue hostel has all the potential to be a great stay, but overcrowding in small rooms ruins the experience. I stayed one night in a 12 bed dorm. The beds are triple bunks. If you are stuck on the top bunk, you will hit your head on the ceiling every time you sit up. The lack of a handle...

All the locks on the lockers were cut and $300 in cash, along with everyone else's who stored any cash in the lockers was stolen. The hostel did nothing to compensate any of us for our loss. In general the staff was unfriendly and unhelpful. The...

Stay away from this hostel! The staff are very very rude and only care about making a quick buck. I made a reservation online months ago and came to find out about "hidden fees" later. This place is not worth your time or the headache.
