Where to start. I spent 6 weeks at this hostel whilst volunteering at the Jaguar Rescue Centre a few kilometres away. I stayed in the dorm room for the duration of my stay and rented a bicycle to commute to the Centre, all for a very reasonable price. Having checked out all of the other hostels in the local area, this was just so far above the rest, it didn’t even compare. Oasis became much more than a place to sleep at night, it was like a home for me. The owners Tom and Hadas became my friends, and I loved their friendly, relaxed nature. The hostel itself was comfortable, chilled out, and very clean. I loved the outdoor kitchen (which is really well equipped) and shower, which made me feel free. It was in a great location, close enough to town to access the beach, bar and restaurants, but far enough away to avoid noise, and feel immersed in the jungle. The beautiful trees were home to lots of animals, from howler monkeys most days, to a sloth mother and her baby one day! The hostel attracts lovely people, and consequently I made some amazing friends for life. There are two resident dogs and a cat at the hostel, who brightened up my days and added even more personality to the hostel (Layla, I love you!) I will definitely return to Oasis hostel one day. It will remain with me for the rest of my life. Tom, Hadas, Layla, Cooper and Cookie, I miss you all! Lots of love, Zoe.
