Bi-lingual staff (english) welcome you to this pleasant little hostel. There is a lovely little garden surrounded by 3 or 4 rooms, the stand alone cabana and the common room. A cute little water feature attracts humming birds and is nice to sit by. The room's are basic but clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. ie: thjey are not falling apart...
