The owners were so lovely, friendly & helpful. We had made a small mistake while booking & the owner did not mind at all & was very welcoming. The bed was very comfy and the room had enough space for all of our stuff, a surfboard and still enough space to move about. The kitchen area had everything we needed...

We stayed for three nights at tropical pasta and enjoyed the beauty of the garden and the place to chill! The hostel is very close to the beach and the supermarket. The owners are very friendly and helpful! The rooms are clean and the toilets were new and clean, too. All in all a very nice hostel :)

The hostel itself is nice and clean. Good location, 2 minutes walk from the beach, restaurants and grocery store. There is absolutely no ambiance at all at this hostel. You rarely see the staff and when you do it is only because they need you to pay the room. Not the type of place where they will help you arrange...

The kitchen was not very new but you have all the stuff you need. There are new bathrooms and showers that were just built so they were very nice and...
