Tucan Hotel is a very friendly, family run hostel with a lot of character. We stayed in a private room (we are a couple but it could have slept 5!) with AC and a private bathroom. It was comfortable and the fittings were fine with a hot(ish) shower. The rooms are organised around a nice central area with hammocks and tables, and there is a basic kitchen. The owners are extremely friendly and were happy to give advice or book tours and they loan all sorts of surf and snorkeling equipment. Breakfast and dinner are extra and seem good, but we didn't use so can't comment. At $34 per night it was excellent value for money.
I am giving 4 stars, not 5, because of the location. It is located near the main road, and not near the beach (a good 45min walk, or a free morning shuttle from the hotel). Other local sites (such as a waterfall and river swimming hole) are 20-30mins walk away. It is close to the supermarket and transport links, but if you are staying longer than the two nights that we did then you might struggle to find enough close by to do without paying for tours and transport.
