From the moment I arrived at 3B I felt welcomed as a family member. The staff was super friendly, yet professional and always attentive whenever I needed anything. Great value, a short walk to the beach and exactly what I look for in a hostel. The Usual Sundays party they throw

Response from Yvan3b, Owner at Hostel 3B Chic & Cheap
Responded Apr 12, 2019
I’m super sad to read this. As the owner im really sorry you had an awful time at my hostel to write something like this. First of all from the description of the room in our website or any booking site is called PEOPLE PARTY ROOM and it explains music every day till 2am (even when we close earlier at times. Its meant for people that sleep late and party that dont mind noise before that time. Im sorry about the night guy he was a volunteer bur after this comment im definitely letting him go, im sorry he couldn’t fix your situation or make you feel at ease. Not letting you know about our monthly fugimation rutine was a big mistake from management and i dealing with that right now im deeply sorry for that but for the record the chemicals we use are 100 percent none toxic or hamrful for humans. We just wanted to make sure there was none unwanted guests and make your stay even worse. I had my Fumigating staff for many years and i trust them and was very confident they would of not taken oe damage anything of your personal belongings but anyways management had to let you guys know. Big mistaken and will make sure ill never happen again! Wish you the best in your future travels.
