    Thanks for the feedback. I am very sorry you had a negative experience. We had a few volunteers who were coming to the end of their time at Casa and they were not giving some guests the attention they deserved. These helpers have now left,...More

    They repeatedly emphasised over the phone that this was a party hostel and that was definitely the case. Staff were friendly and welcoming but there was definitely a vibe that if you're not drinking, they're not interested. There was also a lot of pressure to...More

    I'm sorry you didn't have great time at Iguana..most people do. We generally go to considerable lengths to make sure they know we are a place to have a good time, and sometimes it can run pretty late. Your accusation that other reviews are inaccurate...More
