After reading the reviews and seeing what they say about this hostel, I was expecting a lot more. the swim up bar is just stools in the water, you can't order drinks from there. I stayed two nights for $22 in a 4 person tent, and even though it was covered and our tent was closed, my mattress still got soaked. We got kicked out of the pool at 11pm, so they were good at enforcing rules. It was right across the street from a bar that played really loud music, so be prepared. However, the atmosphere was good and it was nice to have the open space and the volleyball court, and there was one very attractive worker!
