This i a a hostel that others should model after. Excellent WiFi, beautiful well stocked kitchen, nice lockers in the room, great space for lounging, even sunscreen at the front desk. These guys cover everything. I really can't think of a better hostel I've stayed at in terms of doing everything just right!
