Been traveling for two weeks and this was the best hostel we've stayed yet. The receptionist are very nice and helpful. The facilities are awesome with great decoration and attention to detail. Right next to the beach and a bar and activities to socialize. Thanks!!!

I paid for a private room, it was nice and clean w a private bathroom.. which I love especially when it's really hot. There's no A/C but you do get a ceiling fan.. the only issue since it's an island, and everyone is trying to stay cool, they often lose power.. The first night,

Stayed here for 2 nights, on both nights the power went out meaning not only no light or fan/ac there was no water for showers or flushing toilets!! The hostel is WAY overpriced! We paid 40 dollars for a basic room with a bathroom and fan whilst our friends found a place down

Thankyou for writing you feedback on Tribu hostel. We are glad that you enjoyed the free activities that we provide for guests at Tribu every day! Reception is open from 8am-8pm which is normally early enough to see off our tours. The start time of the whale shark tour is dependant on the weather so we apologise that in your case this happened to be before reception opens. We will definately be more mindful of this in the future. We are so sorry about the electrcity during your stay at Tribu. You were stayng with us during a particularly bad week for the electricity. During that week across the island there was powercuts every day. The thing that makes it difficult for our staff is knowing if the powercut will be five minutes or five hours. We have had a meeting since your review to determine what more we can do to support guests during the island powercuts. We hank you for your review. Mia

Checked in ok, staff were friendly. Room was basic and clean, fan worked well and shower had warm water. The pub quiz was good fun and the hostel runs plenty of activities. The wifi was terrible and even when it said I had full signal nothing would load, not ideal when trying

We are glad that you enjoyed the activities at Tribu Hostel, we regularly ask guests what activities they would like and try our best to provide! We are so sorry about the electrcity during your stay at Tribu. You were stayng with us during a particularly bad week for the electricity. During that week across the island there were powercuts every day. The thing that makes it difficult for our staff is knowing if the powercut will be five minutes or five hours. In this instance, the people who were responsible for ensuring that we provided water etc for guests were performing below our standard and therefore this affected your stay. We thank you so much for raising this issue that has been a problem for years and is getting worse during summer period. We have already had a meeting and thought of new ways to ensure that guests are well informed and looked-after during island powercuts. Warmest wishes, Mia

They are extremely warm and had uncomfortable beds. We changed rooms to a private which was much better. Staff was friendly but not well informed about the island. Wifi was a network barely with Internet, could almost read my mail but not anything more. Kitchen large but was

"I think they are all great."
"Get a room up high to avoid mosquitos!"
"Private rooms are worth the extra money."
"The 8-bed dorm is located under the bar. If you need to sleep before 1am, choose the 10-bed or 6-bed dorms."
"Grab something close to the fans in the dorm!"
