“We stayed in a double room which was...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2010

We stayed in a double room which was pretty small, no windows, fan cooled. Pretty comfortable but may be pretty warm if it was really hot outside. Small communal space in garden and under main house. Bar which gets pretty busy some evenings. Free make-yourself pancakes for breakfast & wifi included. Better value places around.

I had an awesome time here, litterally the best of my 5 months in Latin America. Yes, the rooms and bathrooms are a little rough around the edges, but the place exudes a vibe that cannot be brought. The staff are brilliant, bar is cheap, and it's really social. Perfect if ur looking to make friends. Someone once described this place as 'a small piece of freedom in a world of too many rules and responsibilities'. Stay one night, join in, and u won't want to leave. But u have to join in!

For the cost of this hostel, ($11pp/night/private room) much better digs can be found for a few bucks more. While people are always cleaning, this is just not that clean of accommodations. Shared bathrooms are some of the worse I have seen in a hostel. Everyone working in the hostel was very nice and customer service was great. Free pancake breakfast (you have to make yourself) and coffee all day long (well after it takes 1 hour + to brew). Great location. Would only recommend for single travelers or couples who can handle things a little rough around the edges. Bar in the rear of hostel can get a little rowdy, but seems to shut down by midnight. Personal property security seemed questionable at times, although I didn't have anything stolen.

If you're OK with the hostel/roughing it experience, this is the place. 4 beds/room, but $6-10/night. Not a bad deal. The people there are great, the bar is fantastic, and ultra-cheap. Bikes and surfboards to borrow, and it's right off "downtown." Over, the highlight of my trip through Central America was my time there.
