I've heard/ read good reviews of this hostel but my experience was not the same.
I reserved for a bed in an all female room two days in advance but once I got there I was told they were sold out and can only be put in a co-ed dorm. It was late at night and pouring rain so I accepted it.
The layout of the hostel is on a hill and my room was situated at the very bottom. 6 beds were jammed in what appears to be a makeshift room, much less room for lockers (none). It looked like a laundry room before. The washroom was an outhouse with a shower so only one person can go at a time.
I requested to be transfered but no other rooms were available for another 2 days. I refused to stay there another night so I ended up paying them to check me out! My mistake was paying upfront and was only refunded 25% of the 4 nights.
While the views of the lagoon are stunning, the facilities were a dump and customer service was lacking. They obviously overbooked at the expense of a guest.
