Has potential but only that
Location is good with access to a secluded rock beach. Apart from that, there's several problems. The property is not finished and should not be operating. There's several safety hazards like exposed wires, and nail and screws in areas where you are meant to be walking barefoot. Dorms are on a mezzanine level and at night there's no light or protection so people fall and hurt themselves. This place is a mosquito breeding ground with lots of mudd and stale water right under the dorm. They should put citronella all around. Half of the toilets have no sink. The other half have a sink but none has hand soap. How do staff wash their hands? Not surprisingly, I got bad, really bad diarrhea at this place. Wifi almost never works and when it does its extremely slow plus it's only available at the bar, not at the dorm as the listing would make you believe.

Id come back
Amazing view!! I stayed all day and read a book. Close enough to the pier and visit the beach but as a solo female, i probably wouldn’t walk down by myself as itgettpretty dark. Overall, comfortable stay!

Amazing hostel, bar, restaurant and view
This hostel was great with an equally great price. At the highest point on the island with nightly sunsets, and a great deck lounge that is lively at night with people drinking together sitting on mats. One of the few places on the island with strong WiFi. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the accommodation was a nice wooden open air cabin with many single beds with mosquito nets. Plenty of showers and clean toilets. 5-Star hostel.

4/5 Good

Ottima posizione sul promontorio per godere della vista del tramonto e fuori dal "trambusto" del centro (anche se chiamarlo "centro e trambusto" è un po' esagerato vista la dimensione della baia). Le camere private sono disposte su due corridoi (4 alloggi per parte) ed hanno pareti in legno - comunicanti e con tetto unico - pertanto c'è ovviamente privacy e rumori sono presenti. Le camerate sono al piano inferiore e sono all'aria aperta disposte lungo i corridoi, Il bagno in camera è davvero bruttino, abbiamo sempre optato per i bagni in comune per fare la doccia visto che sono molto spaziosi, puliti ed in muratura. Il bar dall'altra parte della strada (che funge da reception e dove c'è la connessione wi-fi) offre birra alla spina a 75 cent di Dollaro durante l'happy hour dove si può guastare e godere del tramonto più bello del villaggio. Consigliato a chi ha spirito di adattamento e poche pretese visto il costo super contenuto del soggiorno.
