They will make you feel unwanted there as often as possible during your stay. They did it so often, it must be on purpose given the place is a freaking hostel. I felt really uncomfortable!! The price and place itself is okay-ish.

The hostel doesn't look like the pictures AT ALL. It is quite dirty and no privacy at all as there are no windows (so you hear everything from the common area) and as half of the hostel goes through your dorm room while you are sleeping to have a shower. There were also no lockers available. The atmosphere is nice... More

Beds are uncomfortable, the place is noisy and dirty, and the owner's cats get into rooms are beds (I ain't got nothing against cats in general, but they're dirty and one might be allergic). They try to give a cool or bohemian atmosphere to the hostel but is all fake and once you pay they don't care about you anymore.... More

Construction zone! Dusty and noisy. Dining area filled with smokers! No area set aside for non-smokers! Smoke enters the bedrooms through the loosely fitted bamboo poles which serve as makeshift walls. Dining tables are right beside the sleeping quarters. Bright lights and noises were heard from guests throughout the night, which prevented me from getting a good night's rest. I... More

I stayed a couple of days without showers, there were dead cockroaches and many other running in the common area near the refigerador, bicycles for rent in very poor condition, very noisy at night. The manager does not know how to run a hostel coz volunteers are out of control.The only good thing were the pizzas but next door the... More

The first thing I would say about this hostel is that on the hostel bookers sight it appears to be on the beach, it isn't!!! Be aware that this hostel is in town. Having said this the location is ok, next to a pretty cool cafe and mojito bar, although both are expensive. Overall I was pretty disappointed with experience,... More

Staff was great and very friendly, although not all spoke fluent English. The free breakfast is on the meager side - it consists of toast and jam as well as some fresh fruit, but was still a welcome amenity. I thought that the overall facilities were up to par, as I didn't have an issue with cleanliness and saw staff... More

Not sure about the hostel but the food here is good! Pizza cooked over wood burning fire. Fresh made dough and ingredients along with big salads and burgers or vegan burgers to choose from. My wife and I love nearby and frequent this place. The staff is very nice too.

The staff were friendly and nice, but the facilities were lacking - only one shower for all guests, and there was no water pressure - it was literally just a trickle of water. Also, it was beyond dirty. In the shower alone there were 3 dead cockroaches, which leaves me wondering if that was what accumulated in just 1 day,... More
