I loved how the hostel extended the idea of comfort into every aspect. The hammock on the patio, the soft bath towels, and the incredible bedding made this a very enjoyable stay. I appreciated the quick tour on our arrival and even though we did not use all of the amenities during our short stay, I was pleased to learn about the beach supplies and board games available to borrow. But seriously, we considered calling in to work to spend another night in that bed.

Loved how clean the facility was and the courteousness of the staff was outstanding. Even though it may be a safe area, I would have felt better with security presence.

I had a very enjoyable stay. A minor detail - I like getting around with public transportation. It would be useful if tyhe hostel had copies of the most relevant bus route schedules - 923,and 35, 992, 28 and 84.

I have stayed at this hostel before and it is one of my favorites. This time I stayed in the ladies dorm and I am happy to say that it was a very nice experience everyone was very considerate with the noise they made. I would try it again. I got to meet the girl scout troop that is involved with this Hostel they made dinner for us. A very nice bunch of young ladies.
