We had two restful nights at these hostel. Just 10 minutes walk away from the lagoon and a couple of steps to the esplanade the hostel offers a clean room and clean showers for a fair price. Quite good accommodation. The breakfast was included, simple but good. Had free wifi and friendly helpful staff.

This hostel seemed newly updated with a modern lounge / entryway. I was in a 7 bed dorm which had all single beds (no bunks) so that was an added bonus. The room was clean/ tidy and air-conditioned with a bathroom attached for just our room. The free breakfast of toast, cereal and coffee was great. Something you don't always...

Even though I missed the check in times the owner made it possible for me to get in after a quick call. Everything was well prepared. The room was clean and air-conditioned, an additional fan did it's best as well. The pool is small, anyway the ground level is relaxing and communicative. 10 minutes to walk to the lagoon/ city...
