Staff very friendly and helpful. The property needs some work however for a short stay it is great. You can’t beat its location super convenient, short walk to ADO station and ferry pier, right on the middle of 5th Avenue with plenty of food choices and bars. A few steps from the hostel and the beach is right there. Will definitely will use it again.

This place is about a minute (if that from the beach) and next to so may places that cost a lot more money. It was definitely clean and had everything we needed. Beds were fine, AC and fridge worked. Not sure if TV worked or not as I never used it. The kitchen is shared so you can save yourself some money by just making your own coffee in the morning and making a little breakfast. You can get a bus from the airport and then walk from bus to here in about five minutes, You can take a cab from here (or walk to Wal-Mart) to stock up on essentials like beer and again save yourself money. I packed beer in my backpack everyday and then headed to the beach. Both my companion and I were very happy here. This is not a posh place but it doesn't have a posh price tag. This is located next to everything and hard to believe that just a street up is so busy and noisy. Couldn't hear a thing in our room. And the WifFI was better then I've had had much more expensive places. Including Hotels in Canada and US.

Popol vuh is a great place to chill out and enjoy the beach. Its only 30 sec from the beach and 30sec from the shopping street. You can also reach a lot of good local restaurants 2 blocks from there. The rooms are nice and they clean your room everyday. Outside they have a few hammocks where you can read or just relax and cool down from the heat :) There is also an outdoor kitchen with a refrigerator and a stove. Its clean and nice to sit there. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a great time there :)

This place is fantastic , not high end at all but smack bang in the centre of everything and 15 metres to the sea , you get a double storey beach hut with some fans and mosquito nets​ and there's also a communal kitchen so what else could you possibly need. Apparently a hammock garden , well that's covered also
