The art in the hostel is amazing. The staff is very helpful for figuring out how to get to all major spots to visit. You could show up here and stay for a week with no plans and figure out an amazing time.

This hostel's only redeemable quality is that it is close to the ferrys. It was not that nice, the A/C did not work nor the fans. The area is not great, and taxis are non-existent. I would highly recommend spending the extra money on a local hotel if you are planning on taking the ferry in the morning.

The guy with whom we made the reservation was upfront about the location and clear about what was offered. Everything was very good except the shared bunkroom. The bunk beds were VERY clean. The room had a musty smell and one of the volunteers seemed to think the air conditioning was broken. The guy who manages the place (forgot his... More

I booked it due to reviews, however, this place is filthy. I was not expecting much expect a clean bed to sleep and place to shower for the price. The bathrooms and rooms are not kept clean. I do understand that this is a hostel but to say it is clean it is not. I will say the staff is... More

I had an incredible stay at Moonlight Bay. I arrived late at night after taking the ferry back from Vieques, and was greeted by work exchangers and one of the managers, Peter.

Well, to be honest. I am writing this review from the computer at this hostel itself. I stayed here only for one night. Checked in late, after coming from culebra ferry. The location is best if you want to catch an early morning ferry. This place is right in front of the ferry boarding and ticketing location. Bathrooms and dormitories... More
