I have a very specific question. I am trying to decide between two hostels in Playa Samara. One, Casa Brian, which I've read great things about, is on the outskirts of town, and another, El Cactus, is in the town. Both sound great, though different (have read reviews that El Cactus is less social) but as a solo traveler, I'm wondering whether it would be better to stay in town as opposed to more on the outskirts where I might have to take a taxi on my own (though might meet people at the hostel). I assume taxis are generally safe?
Thanks in advance!
