Disliked: the loud music?party nights every other night (I'm getting a bit old for that now!!!) and Leah - lovely but a mouth like a fog horn that kept us a wake until 2 then woke us up at 6!!! (She works there!)

Liked: Staff are really friendly and helpful, especially the lady who cleans/serves breakfast! Right on the becach, our room was just a few steps away from the water. BBQ and music some nights.

Disliked: Drinks in the bar are quite expensive. Wifi could be better.

Liked: I booked online for a dorm room. When I arrived the dorm rooms were fully booked as thre had been a double booking. However I was given a private double room to myself for two nights at no extra cost! I had been travelling for a long time so it was nice to have some privacy!

Disliked: A bit far from the town centre to be walking alone in the dark

Liked: Aquario Hostel is one of the best hostels I've stayed at in the whole of South America. The location is excellent, right by the beach in front of the water so you fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing against the beach. The best thing about Aquario though is the atmosphere and the amazing and extremely helpful staff (especially Guadalupe...legend!). Helpful with trekking, transfers, amazing beaches to go too, whatever you want really. Can't recommend this hostel highly enough, great place! Also make sure you sign up for the all you can eat bbq whilst you're there...it's awesome!
