      Super social hostel with a gazillion activities that you could do, in addition to seeing the falls. Funky decor and generally awesome spot. Also loved that the locals came and hung out!

      Jollyboys has a great, relaxed atmosphere with a pool, chill reading area, internet cafe, bar, self-serve kitchen as well as small restaurant. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The entire establishment is clean, there are great showers, quite is enforced after 10:30pm and the beds are comfortable with 2 pillows (oh how girls love their pillows!)

      As of March 26, we've been traveling for more than three months, which means that I can check the item "Study/live abroad for 3 months" off of my "30 Things to Do Before I Turn 30" list, and that Dennis and I have achieved the original goal of this trip.
