chose El Guembe cos my first 2 choices were fully booked so I was crossing my fingers when I alighted from the bus terminal. El Guembe is indeed a fair distance from the bus terminal, took me about 15mins to drag my bags through the pebblestones. Finally found the tucked away hostel. Daniel (guess he's the boss) greeted me immediately and knew who I was and showed me my room. First nite, the shower water was not enough so the water disappeared after a short while. i guess the trick is to shower early :)
breakfast is ok, bread w butter & coffee/tea. I'm content w that but u can buy a bit more from the supermkt in town if its not enuf. The pool is working when i was there and i love the hammocks to laze around on a sunny day. Kitchen is a little unkept but my things in the fridge were untouched and everything was there after 2-3 days. Water in the next 2 days are fine and heated and plenty.
A plus is they let me stay on in the lobby w internet after i check out 10am till my bus 5pm leaves. Staff are courteous and friendly :)
