5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I loved the ease of everything on this property. The lockers have hooks so you can use your own personl lock to secure your stuff. There a doctors office on site to get your covid test before you fly back into the US. They even do your laundry and fold it for a small fee (around $13). The manager if most helpful if there is anything you need to know around the island she will guide you and help you with a huge smile on her face. I have been to many hostels before and this is my favorite one.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Amazing on site staff, but double check amenities
The on site staff (I mainly interacted with Kim) is fantastic, & they do an amazing job at keeping the property looking great. However, be aware, that when it says a superior room is "bathroom & shower", it is only a shower & a sink; THERE IS NO TOILET IN THE ROOM. This was not a huge deal; it's just when you think when you're getting your own bathroom & don't have one, it is a bit of a disappointment. Also, it says that a superior room has air conditioning, & we did not have air conditioning; there was a ceiling fan & floor fan instead. If you have a rental car, you need to find off-site parking, which was not an issue, but just know not to look for a parking lot to pull into. It is a beautiful, open patio; we watched NYE fireworks from there bc we did not want to be around crowds bc of COVID, & it was a fantastic view. Also, very convenient location to walk everywhere; we did not get into our car once while we were there.

thought it was great
Maybe because there was only one other guest there during my stay,but I thought it was great, very convenient, close to many restaurants, the kitchen facilities were great. A quick walk to Nelsons dockyard , grocery store was about 1km away
