Friendly employees and cool acconodation. Has clean swimming pool (in shade), big kitchen and good sleeping rooms. It's realy a great hostel for every backpacker and pritty cheap as wel. Only downside is that the airconditioning only work from 5pm-8am. But the reat of the time you can just chill at the beach or in the swimming pool.
