Nothing that nice about the hostel expect cool set up. Essential and big club set up for 2 parties a week. Rooms were very basic with fans. Would recommend partying here but staying elsewhere. Bad that breakfast finished at 10 despite being a party hostel.

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights recently and had a lovely stay. The staff were extremely friendly and happy to chat, as well as the food being really nice, especially JJ's cooking! The sea pool here with swings, slack line and jumps was really cool and a good way to be social with everyone else. There is... More

I was travelling in a group of 5 and we all stayed in a dorm. 2 of the beds had worms crawling on the mattress. We advised reception at around 8pm and they said they would speak to the 'boss'. After an hour of waiting we asked again and were told the boss was asleep and won't be back until... More

Reading some of the other reviews I thought this place was going to be a bit dirty. When I arrived I was quite surprised as how clean it was. Both nights I stayed the cleaning lady was in the room at least three times to check if the 12 person dorms were clean. The dorm room was quite spacious and... More

Very popular night dance spot on the island. People from surrounding areas will always come here, and there are two pools to swim in. The music is that dance-y, techno stuff, but the vibe is cool. Lots of rum being poured, and you get two drink tickets with the price of admission.

I stayed in this hostal and I liked it! Definitely a place to party during the high season. The food also was good, though there were lots of people and sometimes you had to wait a while. The seapool inside the hostal is cool, so you can relax there while you still inside it. The staff also is friendly, mostly... More

We arrived on a rather quiet night fortunately and had a nice time hanging out at the amazing common area with trampoline and swings. The dorms (12pp) however have really noisy fans and the mattresses seem old as they're well bended in the middle. Not your best sleep but a great place to hang out ans sleep somewhere else :-)

Aqua lounge is a great place to go and party; wednesday and saturday nights get CRAZY busy and we did have a great time that night. As somewhere to stay I would not recommend it. My fiancé and our friend booked 4 nights and only stayed one. First off its not on the main island its a $1 boat taxi... More

I stayed at Aqualounge for two nights in January. It's on an island that is a minute boat ride away from the town. The boat ride costs $1 each way. Aqua lounge is on the island with beach access which is handy if you want to swim or suntan. Staff was friendly and the food and drinks were good and... More

It's difficult to review this place as a did have a good time there, but it was more the people and the trip itself that was great rather than the hostel itself. We stayed in November for 6 nights. This was my first stay at a hostel so I don't know what to compare it to, however my two friends... More
