Room was really good for what we paid, very clean and the owners were extremely helpful, as had to use her Spanish skills to help us make some bookings over the phone. The atmosphere there was really good, particularly the hammocks and pool table made it very relaxing. No air con in the room but that is something to expect.

We got out 3 bed dorm for only $6 each person! So there's absolutely nothing I can criticize about the hostel given the price. Single beds, no bunks, kitchen, massive outdoor areas, hammocks, pool table and friendly staff. I would highly recommend this hostel

Stayed here for 4 nights with a high school group. Was a nice quiet, safe hostel that I felt relaxed at, not having to worry about my students getting into trouble. Owners were very helpful.
