If you're looking for accom built for Bodhi and the ex-presidents (re "Point Break")... This is it. A cluster of rough and tumble beach shacks with surf board falling out the windows.

The place is clean and the owner is very friendly, such as the travellers i met. Definitely located close to some good surf spots and the main city, on the northshore. You d better have a car if you want to enjoy the coast.

Stayed here for about a week during summer season - and it was great!! This is a great hostel with amazing staff, cheap bike and surf rentals and an overall warm and happy atmosphere! The location is also great! the best snorkeling is done just across the road and we saw stingrays, sea turtles and a lot of cool fishes!...

When staying at a hostel you are rolling the dice...this time I lost +1 star for an amazing location on the north shore. Can't be beat +1 star for polite friendly staff onsite.

I booked this hotel on the Internet, I was in a hurry and forgot to check tripadvisor. It was a bad experience. Actually, I lost the cancellation fee of US$ 160,00. When I arrived it was hard to get to the Hotel's reception, there are actually two different places in the same street. The room was horrible and not clean....

We arrived without booking and took a studio. The room was quite big with a balcony and kitchen. It was not really clean. Staff not really helpful, and Wifi not available as it should. But the location is really great and the town really pleasant!!

I was worried about booking after reading some of the reviews but we didn't experience the same as others it seems. For a hostel we thought it was good!
