This hostel is great. Friendly, relaxing, excellent location, and very helpful permanent staff. The advantage is everything is available in the one spot and the price is right. The only downside for me was the attitude of the volunteers, who turned off fans despite 35+...More

Had the Greek salad and 10oz ribeye-both very tasty-meat cooked great, plenty of flavour and tender! Going to say it’s the best steak I’ve had in Nica in 3 weeks. Great setting down on the water, very relaxing.
