For me this place was really good, we had a big room, comfortable beds and a closet for our clothes. There is a nice balcony which was nice to sit and relax at night with a nice kitchen. The only think I didn't liked is that it took a really long time most of the days until we got hot water in the shower.

The staff is really nice and they will provide you with info about the area and what to do and answer any questions you may have. The hostel is okay, yet again it is an island! Nice hot water and even though it was simple breakfast is included. There is also a kitchen and a fridge for you to use. Overall not a bad hostel to spend a few nights before moving on to the next island.

I stayed four nights and on the fourth night I was mysteriously moved, to an identical room on a lower floor. Here I had much more road noise, air conditioning wasn't working, room had a very weird foul smell, and I could not get cell phone reception in the room. I went to ask why I had been moved to a different room with identical amenities and the manager started yelling at me, wouldn't let me even ask the question, and then threatened to kick me out and call the police! I just wanted to know why I had been moved, to a room with identical amenities! Unreal. In all my years of travel I've never been treated that badly. Absolutely no excuse for that horrible human being. I will tell everyone not to stay here.

I cannot say this hostel is bad, but we were quite disappointed, especially because I have heard really good things about this hostel. The location is good, and staff also, but the facilities are very basic and although the breakfast is included, do not expect anything especially (everyday basically the same- eggs, tetra pak juice, very bad coffee, bread and some butter/jam. The place simply does not have such a good wibe- at least in my opinion.

The place is clean, no wifi on the rooms. For the money you can get better places in town. I wanted to there 3 times, but twice they've been overbooked and wanted me to stay at another hostel far outside of the center. Had to search for another place then.
