This hostel is in the perfect location! It has a beautiful view of the bay from the kitchen and common area with plenty of room to sit and enjoy the view! The room I was in was quite small (4 bed female dorm), and the luggage lockers are a bit tricky (made of wood and can swell with the heat), but you don’t spend much time in such a beautiful place, so everything worked out just fine! I met several of the staff during my stay there, and they were all incredibly nice and welcoming! They gave great suggestions for food and activities as well! The view alone would make anyone want to stay here, so the friendly and helpful staff, and clean bathrooms, kitchens and showers are an incredible bonus! I would definitely stay here again!
