The hostel that started it all.

All  fears I had about staying at a hostel, my first hostel, were completely wiped away within minutes after checking in. Luna's Castle, as luck would have it, turned out to be nothing like the movie. I was in an eight bed dorm room, with an amazing view of the Caribbean Sea. Breakfast was make it yourself, all you could eat pancakes, so as long as there was batter left. My first hostel experience left such a positive impression, even after all these years, I still remember my first few days there quite vividly. Including the day after I checked out and realized I left my trekking boots behind - I still managed to recover them, in another country, thanks to another fellow backpacker.
