I spent ten days here last month and really felt at home. The hostel is a VERY clean house with several rooms. It is very comfortable and homey. It is about a 17 minute walk from the city center. As mentioned by other reviewers, that is about a $2.50 taxi ride. The beds are super comfortable. It was stocked with plates and utensils as well as seasoning and sugar. Molly even brought over fresh ginger for us because my traveling companion had stomach issues. I really appreciated that.
Molly-Ann and Rudolfo are super sweet. They are eager to please and let us know that we can feel free to come over and ask for whatever we need. We did and they were true to their word. They never seemed annoyed. If they were heading to town or driving home and saw us on the road, they offered us a ride. This is kindness that comes from very good hearts.
The thing that touched my heart the most was hearing Molly-Ann's little feet running toward the hostel and her calling out my name to invite me over the last night I was there. I felt as if I had made a friend. Needless to say, I look forward to returning in the future.
I look forward to going back to the hostel and seeing Rudolfo, Molly-Ann and their baby.
