This was not like any other hostel I've stayed in. It was more like a jungle lodge, only a fraction of the price. The setting is incredible, there's a lagoon with turtles and enormous fish, and it's surrounded by the sounds of the jungle. The facilities are great, they have a bar area, in which there were generally people drinking every night (the beer there is reasonable), a kitchen (the implements need re-stocking though), a table tennis table, and they provide free drinking water. The guy at reception, Carlos, was friendly and helpful, and spoke perfect English! Also, there's a great street BBQ place just down the road - cheap and delicious! We loved our time here, and would have stayed longer if we could.
