    Rocking J's is a youth hostel. It's cheap, it's big and it can be very loud. There are quite a few sleeping options. For 6$ you can camp with your own tent or hammock. For 7$ you get a place to sleep on a hammock....More

    Very unfriendly staff, filthy toilets and showers, very loud and way too expensive for what it offers. If you just wanna get drunk and wasted, this is your place, but if you are a traveler I would not recommend wasting your time and money here.
