    • I was extremely impressed with the entire hostel experience here. The woman running it was so kind and was eager and willing to help. I have never seen a cleaner hostel or one with a better kitchen. Exactly what my friends and I needed for a weekend away. The island is absolutely beautiful as well. I would highly recommend it.
