Worst hostel I have witnessed! It was dirty and the rooms were so small and cramped. Pool was dirty and the place just had a weird vibe. I didn't like taganga at all tbh but this hostel didn't help the experience whatsoever! I would look elsewhere

We stayed here 9 days ago and My back has been in agony ever since due to the worn out beds. If you choose to stay here, check the beds first. Apart from this the hostel was ok. Food they served was decent.

“We had room #10 on the second level. Five bunks... just dont go for the beds near the window unless you love saunas. Putting an extra blanket up helped block out the sun during the day. The shared toilet was just outside our door. So was a sort of private lounge area that we took over often. Good spot”
