We booked a private room at this hostel through hostelworld and paid in full before going. We discovered that this was a smart choice as the price on hostelworld is cheaper by a couple of bucks.
Can't speak for the bunks but the mattress in the private room was not comfortable and the pillows were thin.
Very clean hostel on a very nice property. Well taken care of. Loved the pool area and the hammocks.
Also liked that there was a restaurant/bar right there. Not a place to party but definitely a good setting for meeting people. Try the hookah they have tons of flavours!
The staff were immensely helpful. All of them are personable locals with good english and extensive knowledge of the area. Ask them anything - they will give you honest advice on whatever you want to hear about.
