We partly stayed at this hostel due to previous reviews mentioning how helpful the owner was in helping plan onward trips, and we weren't disappointed. It is a fairly basic hostel, offering a variety of rooms, but is run as a family business, with the owner and his family living there, rather than as a pure commercial enterprise. It was...

The owner and staff are awesome, the best free hostel breakfast around, the chill area is great and you can even watch a movie on projector if that is your thing. Wifi is top notch all hours of the day and they can set you up with everything you need from dive to buses. Nice beds and facilities, we ended...

We spent a really great night at Villa Maay. The hostel itself had a really peaceful and relaxed atmosphere with great kitchen facilities and common area. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and had air conditioning. The owner went above and beyond the expected to make us feel comfortable, and had lots of information about diving (and other recommendations) The...

Excellent staff, clean, quiet, good breakfast, short walk to the beach. Excellent prices for drinks on hand, good wifi. Everything you could ask for in a hostel. They can help set you up with a great Dive School as well.

Don David the owner is very helpful and I booked my scuba diving and trek to the Lost City through him. I had good experiences with both those companies as well and saved money when I compared prices, so you ca trust his advice. He will also cook ad serve you a filling breakfast any time between 7 and 10....

We had a very bad surprise when arriving at this awful little spot. Reading the reviews it seemed to be an incredible place. That explains my very bad rating because this hostel is a not at all what it pretends to be, the reviews don't meet the reality particularly about the owner himself,not at all the great person named in...

I visited this hostel recently and instantly felt an amazing vibe about the place! Very homely and beautiful, colourful interior! Cheap beers and great big space for eating and drinking with friends! Nice big kitchen to make your own food and the whole place is super clean so you feel like you're at home! Perfect location as well !

I stayed at the hostel with my husband and son, we did not have any inconvenience, the room was basic but comfortable and clean. The breakfast was good and enough. Davide the owner is a very polite person, willing to help us, he gave us some advice on how to move around. I strongly recommend this place to spend some...
