Staff were very nice and great location. Nice atmosphere amongst residents. Hostel is compact, showers and toilets in basement and are far from rooms, which have only small lockers, some of which weren't lockable. Kitchen and common area is small and is part of reception area and cockroaches in kitchen! Positive stay overall.


Best kitchen i've seen at a hostel. Close to the beach. Pretty small rooms and far to the bathrooms. No elevator.
