We have been coming back every year and still love the place. We stayed one night in a double room just off the dorms as we were flying out to Mauke the next day. It was a very big room with a great shower and nice big bed, we used the kitchen in the dorm and left some food in the fridge for when we returned. We got picked up from the airport when we landed and taken back the next day to fly out to Mauke. We then arrived back 3 days later and got picked up and this time stayed in our favourite place right on the beach, a self contained unit. We love staying here as it is cheap but also clean and comfortable and right on the beachfront. I love to hear the ocean and to be able to look out at the ocean while lying in bed if I want to. Great view to look out for whales of which we only got to see one this year. Although the site of its massive tale splashing into the water is a sight to behold. The backpackers has a big section of sand out the front and there is an area of water you can get into without reefs to cool down. Quite of few of the coconut trees are growing large so you do have to be aware of where you are sitting in case one falls off. The hammocks under the units are great to lie in and read or just pass the time away. We will be back.
