Located a short walk from downtown, this place is like a mini resort with both hostel and hotel rooms. Rooms are simple and clean with comfortable beds, large storage lockers, table, chairs, and air-conditioning. The complementary continental breakfast is perfect to get your day started. Common areas include a pool with lounge chairs, a bar and a restaurant with a wonderful tapas and snack menu, billiards, darts and bocci ball games. Lots of great spaces for relaxing and meeting fellow guests. There’s even a mini market store! Shared bathrooms and showers are clean. Kitchenettes throughout compound are furnished mini-fridges and microwaves, tableware and cutlery. Wonderful and knowledgeable front desk staff are happy to book tours, car rentals or answer any questions you may have during your stay. The space has a great vibe and I would recommend this little gem to anyone traveling to Curaçao.

I am really enjoying my stay here. The staff are super friendly (from entry guard, to reception, bar & restaurant staff, night porter and cleaning staff). They go out of their way to help you. I highly recommend staying here. It is walking distance to downtown and easy access to buses. There is free parking and the area is gated. There is even a pool and jacuzzi to use (not heated but due to the temperature here, it is not cold). As an aside, the tuna tataki is amazing!!!!(The only small negatives are: lack of light for reading and US/Canada style outlets are in common areas, not the rooms. There are EU outlets in the rooms. Both voltages are available for charging. A lot of people charge their phones etc in common areas and by the bar, and nothing has disappeared to my knowledge. My phone did not.)

The price is great for small business owners and others. Management and staff are available, listen, answer questions and take action when you request something. They also explain and instruct very well. The little white complimentary bag does miracles for personal organization. place is clean and housekeeping staff very amicable Bathrooms are clean, I missed having hand drying paper towels though. It is nice to be able to store food and drinks; have to inquire about cooking opportunities too. Opportunity to take care of dirty clothes in laundry room is great but could get a better 'face' with baskets, chairs and folding tables I like details like clips with 'what to do on the island' in breakfast area. Breakfast- and dinner servers are top, very helpful and professional.

Did stayed 2 nights in this hostel. Had a very nice time and met some nice people there. The diving club is very good, had a nice dive with them. Recommandated for beginners like me. Only drinks in the bar are too expensif for backpackers. Reception and staff very nice. Thanks

As this was my first time staying in a shared hostel I was honestly expecting the worst. However, this hostel proved otherwise and I had a pleasant experience, not only with other travelers, but with the staff as well. I would definitely return here as well as recommend it to friends.
