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.


Great location and clean rooms, happily switched our rooms when the heater in our original room was not working, appreciated the roof top terrace. It was low season and the twon was quite quiet, but I was still hoping to see some enthusiasm from the staff about what to do or see while we were in town. Not only were they unenthused, they really had no idea about transportation, food, etc. when we attempted to form some plans on our own. Luckily, there was a tourist info centre very close by.
