The good: the staff was helpful, the location is excellent and the hostel is able to offer a wide variety of activities including a daily shuttle service to nearby beaches. Daily freshly cooked breakfast is included in the price. The best part is the roof top bar. It's pretty much the only place to sit to read or just relax and have access to a nice breeze. Now, the not so good. We were required to prepay for the entire stay before arriving using Paypal and to pay a 5% booking fee. Once we arrived, we also had to pay $2 each for use of a towel, plus a $5 room key deposit. One night, one of the employees was supposed to be caring for the owner's dog, however, left it locked in a room, went out partying all night. The dog barked all night and no one know what to do about it. At least, the next day, the staff did offer an apology and some compensation.
