The lady who manage this hostel is really really kind. The location is perfect because you are in the center of the town, and have a good price, but, the clean isn't good, and bed are really bad. We stay there just for one night and I think it was enough.

I don't know which substance they sprayed there but I couldn't sleep the whole night because my whole body was itching! Very unfriendly after confronting them with this. Furthermore they claim to have AC but in fact maybe one room of the hostel has! 0% recomended!

Never again!!! This place is extremely dirty and full of bedbugs. Beds were uncomfortable and the hostel / whole place.was so disgusting that we couldn't sleep the whole night. And last but not least we saw a rat and roaches in the kitchen. Stay away!!!

This hostel is an extremely cheap and conveniently located hostel right next to a grocery store, next to the central park, and close to many restaurants and bars. The owners and staff were all extremely friendly and catered to our every need, which were many since I stayed with a group of 8 girls. We were able to stay in... More

Coconut Hostel looks very tropical from the exterior, and the interior is very basic and "rugged". A dorm bed costs about $12/night, and the staff is very, uh, relaxed with their guest policy as their only record of your stay is whatever name you tell them to write in their paper composition book. They will then point at a room... More

the reason why we stayed in this hostel is because all the other ones we had seen were full. The short stay we spent at Coconut was terrible. Here are the reasons why (not exhaustive list) : 1) the rooms are not completly closed, as there is a large space between the top of the wall and the roof. Then... More

The prices are a little cheaper than the average prices in the island and you might get a discount if you stay for more than two nights. The bathroom is a little wierd and no hot water (which is common in this area). The owner and staff are very friendly and helpfull and there is a breakfast of one pancake... More

Writing this from the hostel itself because I cannot sleep. The hostel itself was noisy until 11:30 pm and now I can hear the bar down the road, even with earplugs in. I had gone to bed earlier (9:30) since I have to travel tomorrow, but I have been awake since they decided to show the room to someone at... More
