The host was very friendly and they really tried to keep everything clean with success! They have things for you to use like snorkelling stuff and beach stuff which is really nice and for free! The only thing we missed was a closet in the room to put our stuff inside but it's not a very big deal. The beach, bus stop, supermarket and main street are just 5 minutes far away from the hostel which is perfect. Finally, I would recommend it to everybody to stay there.
