Liked: Stayed in a private room with bath - nice room, great hot shower, well-equipped roomNice cafe and decent breakfast, though a larger helping of juice would have been nice - eggs cooked to order. Nice, friendly staff. Free yoga

Disliked: Did not empty the toilet bin in our room without us asking. I don't mind hostels not cleaning the room when you are only there a day or two, but when you can't flush paper down the loo, bin emptying should be standard. It could have been an oversight of course. All else was great

Liked: The dorm was huge. No bunk beds in sight! Personal lights, plug sockets and a chest at the end of the bed. Very comfortable.

Liked: The dorm is amazing! Eight beds but all big, great mattresses, well separated in a massive room and NO BUNKS! It is without doubt the best eight bedder I've stayed in after a year on the road. A great breakfast with proper coffee, cereal & yougat or eggs, toast and cake. A kitchen and enough space to sit, eat, chat, work all round this place off well. The staff are great, two of which speak excellent English. It's not a party hostel but has a really nice mix of younger kids and older goats (like me) from all over the world. Very good.

Disliked: It was my fault but I arrived on an early bus from San Pedro. I didn't tell the hostel so was stood outside for an hour and a half until they opened at 8am. No criticism of the hostel, but if you are going to arrive before 8am, you should tell them or make plans for your wait.
