One of the main reasons I booked this hostel last minute was its great rating for solo travellers. While the hostel location is indeed great and safe for solo travellers, I had a bad experience with the airport pick up. The driver had practically no English skills, and tried to pick up another passenger to make more money I guess thinking that being a girl I might have put up with it?! Not sure. Since I had booked for a private pickup, I was very surprised and annoyed when I had to wait for this other passenger from I don't know where. Not really the hotel's fault but they should be working with a more reliable service provider. In the end, I got annoyed and didn't trust the driver so I just took a taxi from the airport after negotiating the price before getting in. After a long drive, I started to get nervous if the taxi driver knew where the hostel/ hotel was. Again he had no English, so that got me even more worried. Luckily I called through to the hostel receptionist who helped me to translate, then I knew I was okay in the cab. Overall, the locals are very helpful and luckily I wasn't arriving at night if not I would have been a little worried being kind of trapped in the taxi not knowing if and when I would arrive at my hotel. I figured out later that the taxi driver took a detour to avoid traffic that's why the ride from the airport to the main beach area took longer than expected. The room is cleaned every day with fresh towels, but I thought the photo of the room I booked was very misleading, as I ended up with a smaller room with no windows. I wished I knew, or should have been alerted at booking or email, so I would not have stayed here for 5 nights. The ladies at reception were very nice but they didn't really have much recommendations when I asked for local things to do. I had better information when I asked the local staff of a dive shop or nearby booking shops. You have to be prepared to ask around from a few sources if you want a better more all-rounded view or opinions, or pick up the local travel guide/ magazine which is actually really good and insightful.
