Pre-booked here following lonely planets recommendation.
I booked into a mixed dorm room. Due to flight being diverted to Panama city I arrived a day later than planned and they wanted to charge me for 2missed shuttle connection one for my flight being diverted and one for getting a taxi from the airport the next day. Once I resolved this by standing my ground and refusing. The staff were extremely helpful and more than happy to assist with my onward travel arrangements. As I was there for 3nights I was able to notice the cracks in the facade. There are no electrical outlets in the shared dorms meaning you can only charge electrics/ phone/ camera in the common areas. I would often notice remenants of food in the dining area, there is no shared kitchen facility so there food or buy out. Also disappointed to notice what can only be decribed as scum on the surface of the pool so doubtful if its cleaned daily. Whilst I appreciated the music played in the bar the volume is such that it can be heard through out the hostel and can be heard from when the bar opens at 7am to midnight. You can not access your room til 2pm. Back to the positives very friendly staff and easy to get to town centre.
