My family and I really enjoyed staying at the Sea Garden and the Olon area in general. The garden/ sitting area is very relaxing. There are some very nice touches to the property and it is very clean. Try to get the tree house or one of the upper rooms so you have an ocean view. The food is good as well.
My only complaint is that when we asked to stay another night the owner initially said we could but then, the next day, when we offered to pay he told us that someone had reserved the room but not confirmed. This was understandable as we did not have a reservation and, at this point, we could have just found another place to stay. However, the owner waited until the next guests actually arrived in mid afternoon to tell us we couldn't have the room. He directed us to another place which he ensured was the same quality as Sea Garden but it was far from and the same price. This is where we were disappointed as we could have found a nicer place on our own earlier in the day.
Overall I liked this hostel. It's has a lot of charm and is in a great location in Olon. Just reserve a room and confirm before your arrival
