Liked: location

Disliked: not all is bad of course but as hostels go it is the worst I have ever been in various aspects. The kitchen looks like recycled from the scrap yard and at the bottom of the fridge in a pond of fluids grows a healthy colony of bactería, eek! Beside the kitchen is a toilet where the "things" never seem to go down! If you want a drink or sandwich past 10 pm from the kitchen, bad luck, all closed. For night owls, if you want to read a book in the comunal area past 11.30 you have to go outside under a street lamp, Curfew time like in a children camp! All chairs up, light out, you are asked to leave! Some of the male stuff feels disturbed if you ask more than 1 short cuestion... And the WiFi? For really, really patient ones only! The router seems to serve only a very limited number of connections only. Don´t expect a guest computer here!

Liked: Location was perfect. Breakfast was good.

Disliked: It was frustrating to see that this is a hostel that has everything to be perfect in terms of location and ameneties. But in the end this was the place where nothing seemed work right, and the staff seemed to be ok about that. The kitchen was quite limited. It rained inside my room. Breakfast was full of flies. Many guests couldn't connect to the internet (this was not an internet problem, you couldn't even connect to the router!). Once a full caipirinha glass of a guest was taken when they were cleaning the tables (and of course, the receptionist was told about this and as usual didn't care about it). When I wanted to extend my reservation it would be more expensive than the price i paid online. And the staff seemed to find normal that I had to go take my laptop, make a new reservation on the internet in front of them, and then finally paying a lower price. There was only one single receptionist who looked happy and willing to help the guests. All the rest seemed to be unhappy, careless, and even rude at times. Don't stay here.

Liked: Great location and the terrace is amazing. Reasonably cheap. Big rooms and the beds were reasonably comfortable.

Disliked: There is no security whatsoever. Anyone would be able to walk straight off the street and into both the hostel and dorm rooms. The bathrooms need to be cleaned more often and the kitchen where they prepare the breakfast is filthy. Except the young Argentinian guy, the staff are not friendly and only speak to you if its a way to make money for the hostel.

Liked: the communual area was good, hammocks and shaded sofas etc. breakfast was alright, had quite a lot on offer. location couldnt have been better, 10 second walk from the beach and main pier. free drink on arrival!!

Disliked: the doors to the dorms didnt shut. there was no drinking water availiable, you had to buy it from the bar. the air con didnt work in dorms. the bathroom was revolting, so dirty and stank of urine, and very dark and dingy. the only way to get light in (tiny amount) was to open the window but this meant everybody walking past could see you naked. the staff were unfriendly and gave false information, didn't seem to know or care what they were talking about. we were put in the wrong room when we arrived, which was full and mixed (we asked for all female) we had to complain as they didnt show us to the room. we were put in the right room, and all the dorms were tiny and fitted 9 people in a room barely big enough for a double bed. this meant no space for big bags! we didnt get clean sheets until late at night, hours after we checked in and when we got them they were damp!

Liked: Great location near restaurants and beach, and big buffet breakfast

Disliked: The staff was not very welcoming and checks you from head to toe every time you come or go, because they are so much cooler than you. I'm not sure they enjoy working there, maybe that's just it. The room was charmless and aircon worked poorly.

Liked: Good location and nice setup of hostel with big area to hang out. Excellent breakfast. Beautiful island with lots of things to do. Nice social vibe.

Disliked: Staff occupies the laptop constantly. Some hangers/ shelves/ storage space in the dorms would really be nice. Dripping roof in our room when raining.

Liked: Very good atmosphere and location. Staff is cool and friendly. They run parties once a week and the hostel gets crowded. Bar prices are not high at all. Rooms have aircon and a fridge.

Disliked: Cleanliness is not a strong point, specially at the kitchen.

Liked: the location was good, there was a lot for breakfast and the staff spoke good english and were very helpful

Disliked: the double room we booked had the hardest mattress ever (there was a plank of wood in the middle), and the staff had issues with knocking before coming into the room (leaving a few embarrassing moments). I suggest using the lockers for ALL valuables just in case
