We liked Hostal Sheck a lot!
Good location, very nice and green facilities with a bar, hammocks and kitchen.
Friendly staff, especially thanks to Jorge for his enthusiasm - he is an infinite source of information!
The hostel provides help with renting bikes and you can rent snorkeling gear and towels for reasonable prices right there.
Breakfast is decent and included.
Downstairs toilets and especially showers are really nice and clean.
Although the dorm is really huge, you don't feel it because of seperating walls. But we didn't like that the bathroom upstairs is open at the top so everyone hears everything...
And we found some garbage under and around our beds.
We would return anytime and recommend to stay there!
