The cleaner Suzanne kept the place so clean. She was lovely and so freindly even though she spoke little English. The hostel was spotless. Beds very comfortable and easy access to bed side lamps and charger for phone. View out on the Bay was lovely and balcony area was very spacious with places to sit and eat.
The staff were not very freindly. Very rarely did they smile at me or know my name even though I booked in for 8 days. Only Suzanne the cleaner remembered my name
The Hostel faces the river/lagoon with a view across the marshes to the Airport and town. The associated restaurant/snack/bar bar is the other side of the road on the beach and faces out to sea. It was amazingly peaceful sitting on the Hostel terrace looking out even with the noise of the planes taking off in the distance. We had the 4 person room for the two of us. Small but perfect for our needs. Really comfortable beds, phone/usb charging points and a little private bathroom. Our stay was off season so no breakfast option (off season the restaurant/snack/bar doesn't open until 11h00). It was not a problem as there is a small general store 5 mins walk away (near the water tower) where we could buy some things to eat on the Hostel terrace watching the Spoonbills, Egrets, etc feeding on the river banks.
The terrace next to the sea is amazing. And just on the other side of the street is a restaurant that belongs to the hostel as well, with an amazing terrace at the beach too.
Nice moment during my stay ! Lovely place and amazing sight ! I was really surprised, everything was literally as I could imagine. Calm and cozy all what I need. I will recommend this place.
I asked some questions when I booked but I haven no answers.
Beds changed and room cleaned everyday. Nice breakfast
Not great pressure in the showers
