I thought this was great value. I booked directly with the hostel and paid $20 for a single room. Had a bit of an issue paying the deposit and ended up mailing a $20 bill - it all worked out and their pre arrival emails were great. It was good value and i had a choice of room on arrival. Did my laundry which was great, girl on reception was lovely and helpful and supermarket next door, fridge in room and 5 minutes to restaurants and beach. Great.

I spend 3 nights in this hotel. Clean rooms with air and hot water - which I never used. Very friendly and helpful at the reception. Breakfast can be arranged if desirred. Decent price for what you get - recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms by the street receive less sun in the afternoon!

We were a group of students and adults. This is a nice little hotel. The rooms were very clean, beds good. Hot water in some rooms, not all. Fridge, a/c in room.
Grocery store attached. Breakfast was great- big bowl of fruit to start, then cereal and toast, juice and coffee.
Great base for day trips. You can even get your laundry done!

the price is competitive, but you get much more value. for example, i could have stayed in a small room, shared bathroom, for the same price, instead i got a new bed, a nice sunset balcony, air con, my own bathroom and a good sized fridge right in my room. there is a great closet area so you can actually unpack and enjoy. plus there is a handy dandy market right downstairs to stock the fridge with. it is not on the beach, but the beach is only 5 minutes away, and the strip with all the restaurants on it is 3 minutes away. there is a little esthetic shop close by where i got a pedicure for $6., including flowers painted on freehand by the lovely Rachel. it is quiet too. i loved it.

Room Tip: the wifi only works on the balcony's, and is slow, BUT it is like that on the whole island, so it is no better anywhere else.

This is a newer, cozy, clean, family-run hotel. It is several blocks from the beach. The hotel has an attached grocery market that is very handy in preparation for outings. The breakfast is simple and good. Coffee is served with breakfast. Service is friendly.
