5/5 Excellent

A really nice hostel. Really good showers! Friendly staff who gave us good tips and hints about where to go and hat to do. Only ok for facilities as it's a hostel. Aircon would have been appreciated (probably a bit much to ask) or a better fan.

Organic and Magical property.

Hosts were very helpful and kind. Location was good for the area. Spacious room but the room was very warm even with 3 fans. Gardens area very colorful and magical.

Beach trap

The parks and animals are what you come for. This hostel has been better. Now there's too many beds in a dorm sharing only 1 combined shower and toilet. If there's enough in your group take a private room. The couple who run it are nice but the kitchen is tiny if the hostel is full I wouldn't drink the tap water either
