The staff was extremely helpful and kind, I felt very welcome. Only negative is that all the noise from the street could be heard from te rooms

This was my first time of staying at a hostel. The staff were super helpful in directing my son and me to bus stops and deciding on day-adventures. I love that this hostel is 3 blocks from the beach. Clean. Safe. I will definitely consider staying in a Hosteling International location again!
