We stayed for one night on Jan 3. It was high season, so coming by a hostel was getting to be tough - we had checked 3 or 4 others which were booked up. The facilities at Marpez aren't bad, but I don't think I slept more than an hour. The son who checked us in said that A/C wasn't... More

I didn't really get the "hostel" feeling from this place and I was so hoping to have it as a solo traveller. It's easy to get to from the airport (catch the shuttle to ADO bus terminal) and the area's lively. The breakfast shouldn't even be advertised or the jacuzzi. Breakfast was white bread (hello heart attack), jam and coffee.... More

Air-conditioning is only available between certain hours. The "jacuzzi spa" consisted of an empty and covered jacuzzi that is filled with dust. Miguel mentioned that he would need 2 days notice in order to clean it. There is only one hammock to use which is on its last leg. The other hammock was covered with a black garbage bag. You...
