We found Pontus down in town and got a lift up to the hostel without a reservation. We were warmly greeted by Carla and Fred and given a tour and choice of beds/rooms.
We stayed in a four-bed dorm with beautifully simple en suite bathroom. Carla and Fred have done a great job building and decorating the place and it is far more hotel than hostel. The bunks were super comfy with nice white linen.
It is a great place to relax and unwind...there are hammocks, and infinity pool, movies and Carla whips up a mean Cuba libre and regals you with stories that will have you in stitches in no time.
The family style dinners are a great idea...ask Carla to make lemon merangue pie. You won't be disappointed. Breakfast of banana pancakes were a hit, too.
Getting up and down to down is ok if you're flexible with timing etc. or you can talk your way onto a naked tiger (next door hostel) shuttle. Beware, they might make you pay, or just have a drink in their bar!
Thanks for a lovely stay, it really was like a home away from home. More
