The hostel made a mistake on hostelworld and they treated us like s*** saying that we are stupid and that was our mistake and they wanted us to paid for the room even if that's not what we booked for.

We didn't actually stay overnight at this hostel but came two consecutive evenings for the food as a friend of mine recommended it. We were pleased with the food (chicken tikka masala, pineapple pork, cheese board with local cheese etc.) and the cheap cocktails and were happy with the service from the bartender, Emmett, who is a very chill guy and took some time to chat with the patrons.

Everything was fine the first night so we returned the following night for dinner. When we finished our meal, the owner came to our table with the bill and since some of us were running low on USD or cordobas, two of us paid in USD and the other paid in cordobas which he said wasn't a problem. But as I handed him my and one of my friend's share in USD and asked for $1 back, he got very aggressive and yelled at us for complicating the transaction. He wanted to just give us change and have us split it amongst ourselves. Carrying out a transaction in two different currencies can be confusing but if he didn't like that, he could've just said so politely instead of yelling at us and then going to the kitchen and complaining about us (yes, we heard it). I can't comment on the rooms and the hostel itself but given what happened, we would not stay here and will not return even for the food.

Highly recommend this hostel. The staff took great care of my boyfriend and I and the owners, Roman and Barbara, were extremely welcoming and made us feel at home here. They answered any questions we had, helped us arrange travel plans, gave great recommendations of things to do on the island and generally took amazing care of us. The atmosphere was also great, we got to know a lot of really cool people here and had a great time hanging out in the common areas. The beds were comfortable and the food was amazinggg if you’re staying here definitely grab a bite to eat at the hostel. Overall we were very happy with our stay and highly recommend it!
