Liked: Beautiful and well maintained, clean, helpful and resourceful staff. Amazing location, cheap drinks at bar. I wish I'd stayed longer!

Disliked: No ladders for top bunks - have to climb up by perching on window ledge (unsafe!)

Liked: The staff here were very informative and friendly-they answered my numerous stupid questions with a lot of patience, which is more than I couldve done. The bar and pool table area were awesome, and a great place to meet other travelers. The location of the hostel is awesome-close to lots of stuff, but not in a noisy/cluby/cracked out area.

Disliked: Although the door that separated the bar area from the hallways of dormrooms did a great job of keeping the loud drunk people/music out, I heard a dorm room door slam every 2 minutes or so. And LOUD. Like, loud enough to wake me up several times. And I am not a light sleeper. It just went on all night. At about 5 I heard what I assume was the manager (i heard the jingly keys they walk around with) walk up and down the hall slamming a few doors-(checking bathrooms, maybe?) Also, the rooms were really really small. That usually doesn't bother me, but it was awkward trying to navigate through everyone's stuff. Oh and the website doesn't mention that the shuttle buses only run at 9 am and 3 pm. And the internet is expensive even though the computers lag like crazy, which I thought was a little unfair. But its still a great place!

Liked: Most phlegmatic and overstrained crew I've ever seen. Nothing really works in this hostel: no money in the ATM, computers don't work, obscure fees for the differnent rooms. Never again!

Liked: The people were really nice there but our 6 mixed dorm was way too small. I´m not sure if i was just unlucky and there are bigger rooms but it was almost unbearable to be in the room with 5 other people. You couldn´t move at all without stepping on belongings of your roommates.

14 December 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: On the Plus side: Definitely an active place. Can't help but meet people and socialize. Excellent location close to the action and the beach, yet just a few blocks out from the noisy all night bustle.On the Down side: Rooms are tiny, the metal bunks squeak endlessly, the doors bang, the halls echo, and the single bathroom per floor can be crowded. But what do you expect for so little money at a hot location.It is a good spot if you are a traveler and want a controlled friendly late night spot.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: It was very modern and a great party atmosphere. The only problem was that there was never any hot water and it was often VERY noisy throughout the night. Very difficult to get any sleep.Also only 5 lockers in a 6 bed dorm doesn't make any sense!
