First of all I have the atmosphere around the place just about makes it. It has tons of nice people to sit and have a drink with at the in-hostel bar. We are into roughing it but the rooms were straight up grungy (bloodstains on the sheets, no bag for the poopaper bucket, etc.) Location is pretty bizzarre to. While... More

Really positiv was that there is a bar, a pool and some couches to relax. I know there are new owner and I know they will make their best to... More

Oldschool, classic style backpacker hostel. Cozy atmosphere, cats and dogs running around, Manu Chao on the speakers and lots of hammocks. Sure, it is a bit run down but that is mostly charming. I would certainly recommend this spot to solo travelers, the atmosphere is excellent for meeting new people. And party. Staff friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. If you go... More

It has taken me quite while to work up the courage to write this review, but i have only just checked out of the mental asylum I was in after staying here. The photos look great, and it has an area that looks quite nice, oh mistaken we were. I did receive and ear infection from the pool, that struck... More

After a long journey stepping into the premises of this charming hostel, I jumped into the inviting pool and had a great drink at the bar. The staff and the fellow travelers were amazing and even though the rooms where simple, they were clean. I loved the hammock, the pool table and the "dirty mother" from the charming barkeeper!

I stayed 3 nights in a private room for only 100 pesos. The staff is very friendly and cordial. The closest beach is at 10 min on foot. You can either chill out in its hammocks or splashing in the water. I met some nice people, had a really good time.

We thought this would be good value for money and don't mind roughing it - we are seasoned travellers. However, this place is too dirty and poorly run for us to recommend. The pool is horrible, dirty and small. The reception smells like wet dog (not the fault of the dogs that live there, if it was cleaned it would... More

The people who worked in the hostel we reallu friendly. You quality of the hostel is equal to the price, not high. There are 2 dogs and 1,cat in the hostel. They entered our dorm and also distributed their poop in the room. This made the stay less nice. For the price however is is okay.

The Staff here were really nice but the rooms were very shabby it's location was not very handy. There was a good party vibe lots if drinking games etc but this meant that it was really loud every night. I think you can find better in the area if I'm honest

It was great to be able to check in anytime and the people were nice but that didn't make the shower work any better or the room any cleaner. Everything seemed sort of filthy and that's unfortunate cause the hostel actually has potential to be a great place for all kinds of people...
