What a gorgeous pool, bar and atmosphere. We enjoyed the villas, were spoiled by the hospitable staff and great vibe. Friday night live music and poolside music day long was fantastic. Definitely will return and recommend !

Best hostel I've ever stayed in. More like a resort than a backpackers. Great location central to everything; bars, waterfront, shops. Highly recommend! Great rooftop bar, restaurant and pool on site. Very social and fun hostel.
