have a good day
“ The hostel is part of the Paraiso Secreto Hostels that share a reception, beach, pool & bar/restaurant and this one is by far the best! It has a fridge that keeps cold all day (the other hostels don’t, as there is no power during the day). Also the host went out of his way to make sure I got to the island safely! He arranged a pick-up at my hostel and even called the company when they were late. The hostel is very clean and has a nice interior that feels like home, the perfect place to chill! “
