Get What You Pay For
Kudos to the photographer! Those pictures do this place justice. PROS: The rooms are cleaned each day. The kitchen is well-equipped. It is close to the bus station, shop, and beach (you can’t swim at the beach). Basic, but cheap. CONS: There are “extended stay” guests who work on the farms/orchards and take over the hostel. I made “friends” with the group so felt welcomed. However, if the kitchen is not cleaned the staff turns the WiFi off until such time as the cleaning meets their expectations. The extended stay guests take over the facility. There is NO AC as indicated (may have changed it as included, after my complaint). Kinda weird place, but cheap.

4/5 Good

Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Nice hostel that attracted friendly, interactive travelers. This was important to me as a solo traveler where, in other hostels, folks were more interested in their phones than meeting/talking with others. My private room was clean and quiet, and the shared baths were tidy. Shower “rooms” were individual and allowed ample space to dress without getting your clean clothes wet.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The property is recently under new ownership and the new owners are making several upgrades (adding outlets to rooms, regular cleaning, etc). My dorm was one of the smallest but the bed was comfortable and there were plenty of other places to hang out. Each bed has a chest that you can lock if you have a lock. The location was perfect!
