We found this spot online and the directions given on website were very useful since taxi drivers do not know the side streets well. We arrived at the hostel and were welcomed with open arms at the gate by the owner, Salem, who showed us around and let us choose our spot. We went for 1 of the private bungalow rooms next to the pool, it was clean, spacious and private. Salem was an amazing host, he took us all the have a cookout on the beach, out to nightclubs, to meet friends and showed us all around town. The only downside was the water issues at the house which have since been taken care of but Salem went out of his way to get us all a hot shower and make sure we were all as comfortable as possible. Great central location in safe neighborhood, great family meals available and enough to do within walking distance to keep you busy for weeks. We have recommended it to all other travelers we have come across and everyone has loved it, and we will definitely be back.
