“Martin McGuinness (Ireland) - Great island. Great place to stay.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

I had a wonderful time at Poppy Kamers. Basic but completely functional. Great value. I thoroughly enjoyed my three week stay. Met some really lovely people also staying there. It truly was a happy house. Ideal location to head into Willhemstad centre. Netto Bar is just down the street (famous local bar). A handy supermarket is across the road. A fabulous, reasonably priced Surinamese bar/eaterie on the corner (5 Fingers) with the lovely Italla on hand. The nearby beach beside Denny's is handy for days you don't fancy moving far. Great to see Art popping in regularly and keeping the place looking nice. Felt quite safe here and very homely. I hope to return sometime soon. Recommended.

I had a good stay. It's in a calm area, nearby the citycentre. Just a short walk. Supermarket and busstop around the corner. Beach is a ten minute walk. Everything you need is present in the house and the house is cleaned once a week.

Everything was as promised. Art is always there for his guests. We had great people staying with us, so the hostel atmosphere was even better. The location is great and even the use of the beach is possible nearby. (Walking distance 10 min)

Newly renovated house in a calm area. I did travel alone and felt safe during the day but didn't walk alone in the evenings. There is a grocery store close, a bus stop and a 1 km walk to the tourist area. The owner is very kind and helpful with everything. He also arrange airport pick-up. The bathrooms and kitchen are cleaned once a week.

Art was very helpful and gave us good tips about the island. The house is very conveniently located close to a supermarket and a bus stop taking you to the beautiful beaches on the northern west coast and it's a short walk to the center of Willemstad. The house is also in good condition and clean. The fans feel a bit noisy (but necessarily given the temperature...) at night and mosquitoes can get irritating but with earplugs and mosquito repellent you should be fine. Great value for money!

A very good place to stay. Close to busses, that takes you around the island. Close to supermarket and a short walk to town. A hostel with a good atmosphere, good kitchen for making your own food.
Art that has the hostel was really helpful, guiding us what to see and do, and very quick to answer text messages/emails. We also got picked up at the airport with no problems at all.
Recommend this hostel to everyone.

Art is more than helpful with giving you all the info needed to have a good time on the island. Though the misquitos can be a pain, bring along some deet and you'll be sorted. Rooms are quite simple, kitchen is kept clean, bathrooms fully functional unless you demand hot water...not happening, but its such a steal you can go to the spa next door if thats your thing. Will be staying at Poppy for my next return
