    Just next to the beach so it’s nice ! The staff was super hyper cool !

    Extremely dirty ! I have never seen such a dirty place in my life ! No cleaning lady ... water clogged in the shower... infested by insects, my neighbor room had bedbugs in her bed. Some weird homeless people were trying to sleep in some rooms and coming in the hostel and to ask for booze and cigarettes... not feeling safe there ... my alcohol got stolen ...

    The atmosphere was pleasant with some exceptions

    You should be firmer with those who do not respect the common sense at the hostel and invite them very quickly to leave especially if you have complaints from other people who live there.

    We arrived way before check in time but the receptionist was nice and let us leave our bags there so we could go to the beach.

    We didn't receive a key to the room, hostel gate or locker and could not leave any valuable items in the hostel, which was very uncomfortable as taking them to the beach was not ideal either. We had our own lock but no way of using it. When I asked what the reason was for not receiving a key, the receptionist stated that of course we're not receiving a key as there are other 4 people in the room ( we are familiar with what a hostel dorm is and we knew that we had booked a 6 bed dorm). This meant that anyone off the street could come in and crash in a bed or take whatever they please, which made staying there feel unsafe. On top of this they had at least 6 dorms on the side of the building that we were in, and only 2 toilets and 1 functional shower for everyone to share. Moreover they hosted a birthday party, in the outdoor area of the hostel, right next to the dorms, with loud music and screaming people until past 2 am. We understand Vama is a party beach town but you'd expect the party to be on the beach or in the bars, not right next to your bed. All this made us leave earlier than planned, even if we had a non refundable booking.
