4/5 Good

Very small but worth it for the price
For the price it was great. Nice having a inexpensive restaurant attached to the Hostel.

4/5 Good

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Pretty basic, as expected of a hostel. But my daughter really liked the bed.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with group
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Amenities
This hostel had what we needed- a bed and a bathroom. It was clean and prepared. We chose this hostel because it was fairly cheap and one of the cheapest places to stay on the island. If I were able to add anything to it, it would be some flavor and a couple more furniture pieces. The walls were all white with no decor. It would have also been nice to have perhaps a side table, a place to put our clothes, and/or anything so that we didn’t have to throw all of our belongings on the floor. It was clean though and all we really needed.

Traveled with family and small children
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Discussing shower, spiders, homeless on street. Not recommended for family with kids. You get what you pay for.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Just right
Petty solid spot, just about what you expect. Double room was clean, had its own bathroom, which was greatly appreciated. There's a Chinese food place downstairs for convenient food
