This hostel is one of the coolest and best hostels I've seen. There is great security to help you feel safe, everything is very clean and organized and the people are really friendly and helpfully. The indoor rock climbing through the hostel is really awesome too. The kitchen was great also we enjoyed a good dinner and breakfast. The front desk was also great with helping us book activities and find the best activities for us and get us transportation. Oh did I mention the beds are really comfy! This hostel is great
