“Could use improvements”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

It's not a bad hostel at all, but it could really use some improvements. It's pretty clean, definitely cheap, and the owners are nice. It's also easy to make friends If you're a young traveler, and there's a kitchen. Plus it's located right on the main drag.

However, the bathrooms were often out of toilet paper and there was no handsoap, which is a major way that ecoli is spread. The kitchen is cleaned every day but the dish soap and sponges are decrepit and therefore the dishes never really seemed clean.

Basically it's just known for being a great spot if you're on a budget, but it's not really anything special.

This hostels offers great value rooms and is one of the only ones on the whole island with a kitchen. The owner Randy is also super chill and nice.

Just make sure that if you end up in the room next to the kitchen ask Randy to change you upstairs as soon as there's a room free. With the kitchen so near, it's pretty noisy and not so good to sleep.

I stayed here for 4 nights and shared a room with 2 friends. We ended up paying 15 Dollars in total (so 5 each) which was incredible value. The rooms are basic, have a fan and are quite clean. There are shared showers which were also clean all the time we stayed here. They have a kitchen (actually they have 2 since they have 2 main buildings) and a fridge so can you also prepare you own food. The people working there were really friendly, especially the lady running the pulperia next door. The place is not next to the beach but that doesnt matter on little corn because everything is close by. I can totally recommend staying there!

We stayed here, 4 of us then 6. It was top notch. Randy the owner is a lovely jolly geezer with much advice and generosity. Great big kitchen and eating area, close to the coconut bread and fresh fish that you can buy and cook yourself. Seek out the bread and fish, it's close.

The room was lovely, clean sheets and towels whenever you want, lovely free drinkable water.

Close to everything but in a nice quiet setting.

Really enjoyed our time on Little Corn and at Tree Brothers.

Well ok, it's not just right at the beach.
But it's clean, cheap ($5USD pp for a room we shared with 4 friends) and has a good kitchen! The owner is super nice, we had a very nice week there.

The only thing is that there is no electricity from 6 am to midday, which means that it gets really hot in the rooms in the morning, because the fans don't work any more.

We were three people sharing a room for $20 (if you stay for a while, normal is $25) which we thought was a good island price. The room was large enough and even had two rocking chairs. We had in-suite shower (with great water pressure) and a toilet. The only thing we wished for is that our room would have been cleaned once during our week stay and our trash taken out.

The hostel has a kitchen, which was our main factor booking this place. It's hard to find a hostel with the kitchen on the island. Cleanliness of the kitchen is great, every morning they would thoroughly clean it. In general the common areas were clean. Also 3 brothers have a weld, which will totally safe to drink and will save you lots of money.

Best thing about 3 brothers? The family! They are so helpful and awesome, hearts of good and joy. They really care about guests having good time and make you feel like part of the family.

So, if you have been traveling for a while and feel a bit homesick - go to 3 brothers and become part of the family! Save money by cooking your own meals and drinking weld water - great backpacker deal.

We stayed one night at three brothers as our place of choice was booked.
Upon arrival Randy showed us our small room but didn't show us the kitchen or mentioned that they had a well with potable water but was happy to sell us water from his shop.
Beds were concrete blocks with sorry excuses for mattresses on them. My side had virtually no springs whereas my girlfriend was poked in her back all the time.
As all over the village the hostel was frequented by mosquitos due to the lack of wind.
Happy to leave for Carlito's the next day :-)
