I came to this hostel a couple of years back and really enjoyed my experience then, but this time my experience was much different. When I first came a couple of years back, there was a nice common room for people to sit together (the one pictured), and I remember breakfast was pretty awesome - back then they had oatmeal, bread, and peanut butter/ jelly.
I was excited to come back, but to my disappointment, the common room was no longer there, and aside from a small amount of instant oatmeal, there was no breakfast in the morning, despite the promise of breakfast when booking (and the signs saying there would be breakfast around the place). There was also mold on one of the pillows in our room. It was also very noisy. My friends couldn't sleep during the night because the neighbors were making very loud noises (of the moaning kind, if you know what I mean).
Service wasn't great either -the owner was not the friendliest to us and seemed annoyed that we tried to check in early. He also asked us for $20 as a deposit for the bio bay tour, but it was never credited towards the fee for the tour. I do appreciate that it was budget friendly, but not sure if I would come back.
