For those who associate hostels (or "backpackers") with cordial staff and making fast friends with fellow travelers, this large resort will not disappoint. Its labyrinthine campus includes two pretty pools, two decent restaurants, a movie theater with free screenings, a modest spa, and game room. Live music brings guests together nightly for alcohol-fueled carousing (don't settle for a room near the main restaurant if you plan to sleep before 1 am). The value here is in the clean, air-conditioned dorms: Gardenia overlooks one of the pools and has the best lounge area. Some dorms and guestrooms are cooled by fans, not air-conditioning, and share bathrooms. The number of beds in dorms range from three to ten.
