If you are traveling on a budget, I tell you that this is the best option in Sint Maarten. This hostel is located close to the international airport (walking distance) as well as one of the most famous touristic points in Sint Maarten, Maho beach. On Maho beach there are supermarkets, drugstores, casino, bars, restaurants... everything you need to support...

I am a tour operator who does not underestimate the significance of good tripadvisor reviews for my livelihood, so I don't take this step lightly but the owners deserve a kick, as they are taking customers for a ride and neglecting their responsibility to deserve to get paid twice a much as any other hostel I have stayed in...to offer...

Dear ILoveOxfordTours, We are terribly sorry to read your reviews and truly wished you had asked to speak to one of the owners during your stay. Especially if you had booked for 6 days. We would have loved to compensate in a different way than with a beer since your problems were much bigger than that. The island has been...

The amenities were ok, beds were ok - a bit overpriced considering it was in the middle of nowhere and you basically needed a car or other transport to stay there. I stayed at 2 other hostels while here and this was the worst of the three and also the most expensive. The bar was very expensive. I had my...

Dear Mike, It is a true pity that you felt the need to leave us this review. Indeed you promised the owner to assist with the paypal issues but after you tried and failed we still gave you one night free of charge. The reason we asked you to leave had nothing to do with this arrangement but more on...

I wanted this place to be good, I really did. Riselle the manager was very helpful thru email and directions and recommendations on the island as well as Anguilla, but the place was just below average. She was training 2 girls when I got there. Maybe bad timing on my part. Waiting about 30 min at 3pm for my room....

I think everyone needs to take everybody else's review with a grain of salt. After all, this is a hostel you are staying in. In my opinion, this is a great hostel for the price. It was very clean and there was staff in there everyday cleaning the amenities, etc. The owner, Richelle, was amazing! She would lend a helping...

The only thing going for the "Crew House" is its proximity to the airport and Maho Beach, but sadly the pros section of this review ends there. The hostel was so incredibly dirty! Mold in the showers, the smell of feet everywhere, no toilet paper in the bathroom and no cleaning in the room - I'm glad I stayed for...

In all my reviews I think this is the first POOR feedback I have left. I think it should be mandatory for any business offering accommodation for a fee to supply toilet paper! The plus of this accommodation is that it is truly walking distance to check in at the airport, it offers free wi-fi although limited access and it...

I arrived at the hostel at night, after sending an email earlier that day. Even though according to the website the hostel was supposed to be open, there was nobody there and everything was locked.
