Natasha Forrester

16 February 2010 Natasha would recommend this property

Liked: Well it is bloody cheap so canae complain, the door seems to be open all the time though there is someone around, kind of. the kitchen is not great though yes it is big, and there is a 5Bs fee to use it. Our floor was filthy and no one ever came to clean in the 5 nights we stayed - but then we never asked. Staff turned out to be friendly and helpful, never felt too unsafe walking back at night, about 20mins to main square. Go have an ice cream at bits and cream (or as the lonely planet calls it beats and cream...). Enjoy Santa Cruz we did!

Disliked: Natasha left no negative feedback.

Liked: You definitely get what you pay for. The only good thing was the price. Pretty sure there were some friendly night time creatures that bit us & some of the rooms had broken windows or no glass in the windows.

June Donaldson

10 October 2009 June would recommend this property

Liked: freddy, who runs the hostel, is one of the kindest people i have met, a really lovely guy. Although I had booked a single room he gave me a triple for the same price. The beds are super comfortable and the rooms/bathrooms are spotlessly clean. Not a party place, which was great for me, but a great stopover for flying in and out of santa cruz and very close to the shuttle bus stop to the airport.

Disliked: June left no negative feedback.
