Great pool
I loved the pool and patio area. It was fabulous. The room did not have air conditioning and wifi did not work in the dorm. The hostel was generally clean and breakfast was good.

Great stay
Stayed here twice once in double room with private bathroom and once with shared. The hostel itself is really nice with a pool and seating area outside to soak up the sun. The rooms are spacious but could do with a bit of renovation but beds were comfy. Staff are really helpful and laundry is cheap. Breakfast is really nice and plentiful and the wi-fi works really well. Kitchen has everything you need to cook a good meal. They also let me store luggage for a week as we went to Easter island. Overall a great stay.
