5 out of 5

Great Location in a Crazy Town

Pros: Location off the main drag, so not affected by the hustle and bustle of this Miami-type town. Facility clean and staff very friendly and helpful. Br
Cons: Nothing - very nice hostel with excellent private cabins.
Location: Everything is within a very short walking distance - lots of options for the day time as well as for night life.
Enjoyed our stay, it was a good experience and glad we added it to our already full travel schedule.
