10/10 Exceptional

For me, the location was the priority. the facilities again for me since I was out every day from sunup to late in the evening was again excellent. And above all very safe and secure. Overall, there was nothing I did not like. Since I have to go back there in January I will want to stay at the same plce.

The staff is so incredibly kind! I love that there are multiple pool options, only thing I’d change is the Continental breakfast: it’s literally just a peanut butter and jelly sandwich lol but the stay here was great

8/10 Very good

Many kind people on the property to greet me and help with any questions. I came at a very quiet time which (late June) which I appreciated—practically didn’t see any other people. The property could use some maintenance and extra cleaning in areas, and jacuzzi did not heat up. Great location to accessing downtown Willemstad. Overall cleanliness of the room was excellent. Access to the Ritz beach pool was a huge plus!

Nice property very quite and relaxing... I think in they need to stare that you're getting continental breakfast instead of saying breakfast included.. The pool is very clean and relaxing, staff are friendly and professional..

The hostel is very nice and it's good that you can use the facilities of the hotel, like the pool and the bar. There is security in the property 24/7 which made me feel very safe. The GM Fazl is a very approachable guy and made everything possible to make my stay very comfortable.

The hostel is basic and could use a bit of upgrading. Great value for the price. Didnt expect comfort. Pros: they accomodate late checkin and have car parking Cons: bathrooms and beds are but outdated.
