Everything was super clean, and the kitchen was huge. Dorms are a great option for the budget traveller. The common area in the restaurant was very relaxing, and they have a reasonably priced happy hour(s). It's maybe a 5 min walk to Red Frog beach, which is probably one of the nicest beaches in Central America. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
We had to ask about the air conditioning on the 2nd day, which they promptly came and turned on. The room did get pretty cold after that though. No cups or glasses in the kitchen. Although not completely related to the hostel, the on site restaurant is WAY overpriced, and the food wasn't very good.
A very clean and relaxing place on Isla Bastimentos, at a great price. We will definitely be back.
