Liked: The dog and the people staying there at the time were the only nice things about the place.

Disliked: This is my first time writing a review after 15 plus years of travelling around the world and staying in hostels and this was one of the worst hostels I have ever stayed in. The owner (Juan) was very unfriendly and unhelpful. I had the unfortunate incident of having to stay 10 days there (not by choice - but due to an accident while trekking which meant I couldn't leave) but I have never been treated so badly whilst staying in a hostel. I was given very poor advice re medical assistance nor was offered any help getting to or from the hospital. Juan appears to only like male surfers who stay in the hostel - females he does not know how to interact with and is VERY disrespectful. There was bed bugs in the room - several people got bitten very badly but they just blamed mozzies! There is zero security in the place - no lockers in the room or even at reception. No locks to the door and no locked gate or fence around the property. People had money stolen from the rooms. The location is bad (apart from it's proximity to the beach). There is no supermarket nearby (apart from a local store which is VERY expensive) - no restaurants and no ATM within walking distance - although there are 2 bikes to use but they are so old they weren't working most of the time. There is no breakfast included but the owner offers a BBQ once a week which is very overpriced - the caiprinhas were served in a dirty plastic communal bottle not glasses. The kitchen facilities in the room is VERY basic and tiny - not enough space to cook and very limited utensils. Meals were sometimes offered but only to select travellers - only males who were surfing. The bunk beds were tiny (you cannot stretch your feet out while sleeping) and very badly made - the wooden slats were missing and very uncomfortable. There is no room between the bunk beds so bags just litter the entire floor making moving around the room very difficult. The Wifi is very poor and there is no access to a computer. The owner lives and runs the place like it is home rather than a hostel and is very selective to who he likes making some guests feeling very uncomfortable and unwelcome.. People were paying different rates for the same rooms. The owner offers day trips although he has no regard to safety and charges 20 plus reals per trip which is very expensive - treks were conducted in torrential rain which was very dangerous and he takes others to very dangerous surf spots where inexperienced surfers got injured. Despite being stuck there for 10 nights and knowing I couldn't walk due to an injury which occurred whilst on his trip (and therefore waiting for my bus in the afternoon) he got very angry that I was sat on the premises after check out and asked for extra money since I used the bathroom. The owner appears to be very greedy and only interested in helping you if you want to buy a surf board off him at an unreasonable price, charging you overpriced trips or if you can provide him with free weed to smoke. This is the worst hostel I have ever stayed at. There are much nicer hostels for the money in more convenient parts of the island - I would definitely NOT recommend staying there.
