This hostel is perfect if you are the type to hang around the hostel all day...they have an array of hammocks, excellent views, a great restaurant, and the facility is very clean. If you like to venture out and interact with locals and bring home new friends for after-hours, it isn't the optimal spot. They have a strict guard at the gate who does not allow you to bring home guests, even if it's early in the evening. Also, it's ages away from the beach, so when you head to town, you have to bring ALL of your stuff. There was also some irritation with the computers because there are only 2 and no time limit is posted, so people would tend to be on there for hours. The kitchen also falls short as it has no utensils or cups or bowls. You have to ask the restaurant to borrow them and then return afterwards.
