Lovely location Owner who tries to pull all the girls..hence..... ...Parties and bands most nights, but cheesy English and American music. Noisy if you want to sleep. Damp rooms with the odd cockroach, Quite a cheap bar. Not far from the ferry. I would only recommend it to certain people!!

Loved the place. Right on the seafront. with its own seawater pool at the front. Plenty of hammocks to chill. Great atmosphere in the bar at night. BBQ with great meat. Well worth it. Great good value tours. Make sure you go to Lopez Mendez, one of the best beaches I've ever been to.

It seems there's has been a drastic turn to worse in this place. I didn't regocnize the place Macblethers describes in his/her review, but that other review in spanish seems familiar indeed. From this place we will remember moldy rooms and moldy/dirty sheets (especially the pillows), poor breakfast, noisy nights, constant powercuts (the hostel didn't have a back-up generator like...

We absolutely loved this hostel. We stayed in a private room and it was very clean, nicely decorated and comfortable - we didn't want to leave. The staff are lovely and if you want to get out and about there is lots to do - boat trips, walks etc. It's a great place to meet people as dinner time is... More
