We stayed for 3 nights at Uma Jaqi in a private room with a shared bathroom. The set up is a bit confusing, because they actually have two buildings; the first one seemed to have mainly dorms with no kitchen, but an employee saw us walk into this location and ran up to escort us to their other building. Unfortunately, our room was located on the ground floor right next to a sushi restaurant, which played music rather loudly late into the night.
Still, it was mostly quiet inside and around the hostel, and we managed to sleep fine during our stay. It wasn't the cleanest place, but also not especially dirty; I think the staff did at least clean the bathrooms daily. Unfortunately there was only one female and one male bathroom, and the shower in the female bathroom was broken.The kitchen, however, was dirty (either the staff or guests did not really clean up after themselves) and not very well stocked with utensils.
Wi-fi was not functional in our room, but worked fine if you went to the common area by reception, or the to roof-top patio. The patio was really nice, and having a view of the ocean while eating/hanging out was a big plus. The staff were always friendly and helpful to us, although sometimes they seemed under-informed (one staff member actually asked my girlfriend for the wifi password). Breakfast was fine, usually a ham & cheese sandwich, cereal, and coffee or tea.
Overall it was a fine place to stay; not the nicest, but the price was right for what they offer. The staff always made us feel welcome, and one of the owners actually asked us for some feedback before we left, and even when we pointed out some negatives he was totally fine. If you need a budget place to stay, you could do worse than Uma Jaqi.
