The Ale Hop was very clean and tidy. Kitchen has everything you need. There is no real reception area. You check in and out through the shop down stairs. The only common area is the kitchen so if your looking for a social time this probably isn't the place for that. Wifi was a bit unreliable. Great location, 2 minutes to the beach and the square with the bars and restaurants.

Amazing hostel! the only problem I think is there is no staff 24/7. The 'staff' works at the shop in front of the hostel... that was the only thing missed. the hostel is really clean n' well located!


Great location in the centre but still quiet. The place looks brand new. It has an excellent kitchen and a roof garden (not much to see up there). There's no staff - it's run through a shop downstairs. So you can only check in/out when the shop is open. A bit of a pain if you want to leave before 10am. Not much atmosphere since the place was empty. I was the only person in the whole place on the first night. The six bed dorm was ok for one but would be very cramped with 6 people.


Nice new and clean hostel. Good size kitchen and room top patio. Washer and dryer to use at no extra cost which is a nice thing. Location is great it's everything you would be looking for in a hostel. Would stay here again and deffently recommend this hostel.


This is a really nice clean hostel that has really nice functional details and is in a great location right in the centre but a quiet location. The women's bathrooms are a bit weird in that there are no working locks on any of the doors. Why?? There is no reception so I gave security a lower score even though there are locker in the rooms (you need to take your own padlock) and locks on the bedroom doors. I don't think it would be difficult for anyone to get in if they wanted to.


Centrally located near the beach and the main square. Roof terrace upstairs was excellent. Staff really helpful and accommodating. The kitchen is really well-equipped with everything you could need to cook.


Nice hostel with friendly staff (who is not present inside the hostel but actually works in the shop on the ground floor), a bit sterile but this might simlpy be because we stayed off-season and so it was rather empty there.
