Nice little hostel, in a quiet neighborhood with close proximity to town. The pool, hammocks, large kitchen are all great. Ample parking and great communication from staff. It’s definitely noisy at night - like any hostel - so be prepared to make friends and stay up later than us…

Great place to stay!! Extremely enjoyable staff, clean, and affordable. Great atmosphere as well. Quiet and secluded yet just a 5 min walk from town. Can't go wrong.
