Liked: Outside of the room was a totally different world. The staff was friendly and helpful. They offered a variety breakfast buffet with two differend kids of natural juice, cake, bread, fruits and a good cafe. The kitchen was clean and equipped with all cookware you'll need. Free WiFi and computers for everybody. A pool in the garden. A lot of dinner offerings for a small money and organized trips. We only can't comment on these because we didn't try anything. On point, outside you'll be able to enjoy your stay if you don't aspect to sleep in the night or feel clean.Außerhalb unserer muffig, feuchten Höhle war eine komplett andere Welt. Das Hostelpersonal war äußerst freundlich und hilfsbereit. Morgens konnten wir in einem vielseitigen Frühstücksbuffet zwischen zwei unterschiedlichen frischen Fruchtsäften, Kuchen, Brötchen, frische Früchte und einem guten Cafe wählen. Die Gemeinschaftsküche war sauber und sehr gut ausgestattet. Unteranderem gab es kostenloses WLAN und ebenfalls kostenlose Computerbenutzung, ein Fernsehraum und einen Pool im Garten. Abends wurde länderthematische Abendessen für wenig Geld, sowohl tagsüber organisierte Aktivitäten angeboten. Leider können wir hierzu nichts sagen, da eine Nacht nicht die Möglichkeit bat, diese auszuprobieren. In allem kann man den Aufenthalt genießen, soweit man nicht zu sehr an einem erholsamen Schlaf und einem sauberen Körpergefühl häng.Afuera de la habitación era todo lo contrario. El equipo que administra es amistoso y buenos ayudando.Ellos ofrecieron un desayuno no muy variado con 2 jugos distintos, queque, pan, frutas y café.La cocina estaba muy bien equipada para cocinar lo que tú quisieras.Wifi y computadores para navegar. Una piscina. Cenas y viajes organizados.Creo que estaban todas las condiciones para compartir afuera, pero no para pasar la noche en la habitación.

Disliked: I booked for two days a room for two persons with private toilet. We used only one, because the room was a disgusting, stinky and dirty hole in a building. The bathroom had a used soap, the opened soup packaged and hair in the shower.The mattress was wet and stinky, the towels were dirty, also the floor. After that night i booked in another hostal because we slept really unconfortable. We choosed because we red the reviews but we feel very disappointed. Ich buchte zwei Tage ein Doppelzimmer mit privatem Bad für zwei Personen. Jedoch blieben wir nur für eine Nacht, da das Zimmer ein miefendes, dreckifes Loch war. In der Dusche fanden wir eine gebrauchte Seife plus Verpackung und einige Haare unserer vorherigen Bewohner. Die Matratze war feucht und ebenfalls miefend. Auch die Duschhandtücher waren schmutzig und mit Flecken übersäht. Das Hostel wählten wir aufgrund der makellosen Kommentare auf Hostelworld. Für uns heute unbegreiflich!Noch bevor der schlaflosen und ungemütlichen Nacht buchten wir eine Pausade für quasi den identischen Preis, nur sauber und um einiges luxeriöser.Reservé una habitación por dos días para dos personas con baño privado.Sin embargo sólo usamos un día, porque el cuarto (o cueva, porque eso parecía) estaba asqueroso, olía mal y estaba cochino. Además el baño tenía jabón usado, con su envoltorio, y lo mas asqueroso era el olor y el pelo de los antiguos arrendatarios, en la ducha.El colchón de la cama estaba húmedo y olía realmente mal. Las.toallas y el suelo estaban cochinas.Después de una noche, reservamos en otro lugar porque dormimos muy incómodos.Escogimos Tucano porque leímos muchas cosas buenas de éste, nos sentimos muy arrepentidos. A veces es mejor pagar un poco mas ( pagamos 10 reales mas por algo 100 veces mejor)

Liked: I loved how they organized trips every day to different beaches on the island, and every night to different bars and clubs. They also cooked dinner every night for about 20 reals. The staff was wonderful in helping me with anything I needed and really made me feel at home.

Disliked: This is definitely a party hostel so do not expect to sleep. I was in a 12 bed dorm and barely slept at all while I was there since everyone comes home staggered from 2-5am and the hostel is very open so noise travels. Our room had a window with no glass so as long as anyone is in the bar area it is very loud.
