First time in a hostel......Great experience!!
I wasn't really sure about staying in a hostel since I never had before. i heard from people on my activities that they loved it and it was very affordable. I heard this was a vey popular hostel so i booked it for one night. The room was pretty simple and perfect to just unwind in. The courtyard was really pretty cool and there were people that had come from all around. One benefit was that there is a kitchen if you want to do cooking. The only thing I would recommend would maybe thicker comforters on the beds. Overall, for my first hostel ever I enjoyed it.

Unbeatable staff!
wonderful and knowledgeable staff! Headed to the sister hostel to check out the pool , which was cute but very warm so not the refreshing dip I was hoping for. Wifi isn't great in the rooms , but you can sit in the lovely courtyard and relax in a hammock while using the Internet!
