we came back to this hostel twice mostly because of the super lovely guys on reception. the guy from london was immense very friendly and helpful. ask him about the local steak restaurant. he was a real joy to chat to, very good at his job. there was also a really helpful chatty guy from brazil who was ace.
when we were there the second time there was also the most life changing banana cake that the cleaners had cooked. delicious! the free breakfasts were really good too.
rooms were ok, quite expensive for what they were though.

... concrete incline. It has wire handrails to help you get either up or down. The best part was I finally saw a monkey. We watched four monkeys running around in the trees very much like squirrels. But, these monkeys are not cute at all. They actually have a very scary face. On our way back down we stopped for water and acai at a little food court. One thing we saw that was really interesting was a solar power charging station. They had ...
... in common areas were rinsed which meant we were on a tight budget until we found a working cashpoint ( hoping it wasn't the card being rejected!) At our 4th attempt.... Success and seeing as we hadn't eaten all day and were feeling tired we found an American esque place and had steak and chips! Happy days! Just returned from the supermarket with breakfastables and lunchables and some soda (their version of sprite) ready for a walking adventure tomorrow!! Hopefully ...
