The place is cool, the people running it are sh*t.
Hostal Bambu has a great pool, always clean. The garden is nice, and cabana is a good spot for protection from the hot sun. The mural is cool. The fans all work, and they actually have warm water. The place was clean, and the coffee was ready. I could do without the dog waking me up throughout the morning. My problem with the place is the people running it. I think his name is Greg -- that guy is sketchy. I've never been to a hostal where you were not allowed to bring your own beer! Have you ever heard of a non-BYOB hostel before? It's f***ing hot in David and the beers across the street are .60. I understand about trying to make money, but when he told me I couldn't have my beer in the fridge, and then he gave me friction for drinking my own beers in the cabana, I was like dude seriously? He was serious alright, and the girl helping him instigated and just made the conversation seem like an irrational bitch-fest. It was like I was supposed to feel grateful to have access to the pool and because of that I should buy his beers. I was like, dude just charge $10 instead of $8! I would have given Bambu a four, but the dude sucks. Overall, David is hot. I'd say the best place is Bambu, but prepare to ignore the assholes working there.
