A lovely place to come relax. Clean facilities, good food and incredible private beach. Think The Beach by Alex Garland Find me floating in paradise I would recommend staying in the 4 bed dorm. You get your own bathroom and the beds are a decent size. Be sure to draw

Had so much fun at this hostel! The staff is very friendly and the view is amazing! Right on the water in it’s own secluded beach, no wifi but that made it even easier to meet new people. Would definitely stay here again!

Is this suitable for a couple in their forties. We still have a little bit of party in us.
What is the price for food? How about Island tour or any activities?
The hostel is on its own island which is difficult to tour but they do offer a snorkelling and fishing trip every day and they open up a separate bar at the end of a pontoon with swings and things. They keep a bar tab open for you so you pay at the end of your stay, which is convenient for not having to carry money for you, but means you need to keep track of what you are spending. I can’t remember the exact prices of the food and drinks but it seemed reasonable for the location.

People at the terminal will all know where to point you towards. There’s a boat that reaches the far end pier a few times a day that takes you directly. There is reportedly a way to walk through the forest to get to t as well. The people I’ve spoken to who did it said it was quite fun. Enjoy your stay there, make sure you do the boat day-trip. Bring lots of USD cash

"Ten bed dorms are cooler, and its lovely to wake up and see the sunrise."
"All rooms are very close (within a 2 minute) to the main beach and hostel."
"The 4 bed dorms have private bathrooms and are much less open than the larger dorms."
"Leaf is the farthest hut but is in total shade"
"Every room has bed bugs - if you choose to stay here be sure to ask about the room and keep all of your belongings outside"
$50 - $50 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
