I wouldn't say this hostel is cheap for a hostel because it is not, but it is cheap for accomodations in Curaçao. The atmosphere is very nice, and the location is very convenient, close to the bus stop and Willemstad historic parts.

Ritz hostel was located at a good spot not far from the center. Restaurants were not close in the vicinity. Facilities were clean and the bar and pool were nice. The value for money was good as the price was very low for that season.

I have stayed approx. 10 days in this hostel and it is an excellent place to be when visiting Curacao. The staff is very helpful, the hostel is clean and it is a short walk to the center of Willemstad.

Loved staying here! VERY clean and walking distance to "Town". I would highly recommend getting a rental car to explore other parts of the island. This place is great for solo travelers! I cam as a solo female traveler and I met other female solo travelers that I ended up hanging out with, so it was awesome! Highly Recommend!

Staffs were very kind and provided lots of useful information. They provided wonderful trip advises. Also I met lots of wonderful people from south america, Europe, and the US. I guess it is wonderful place for a solo traveller. Location is wonderful. Punda downtown is within walk distance. There are lots of interest things within walk distance.
