This was our first experience with a hostel. We stayed in an upstairs room (en suite) in the main lodge. It was cozy and we loved the view. Parking is extremely tight. There is a nice kitchen and the best bread ever is baked there each day. We bought a half loaf to take with us. There is a beautiful 8 minute walk through the rain forest to a beautiful beach. We enjoyed meeting other people. As others have noted, there are no locks on the doors. I would have preferred a lock.
