Great location, although I had a scooter the whole time I was there. Just made it super easy to get around. Hotel attracted great people and Tisa was very helpful and friendly. Although She is not there the entire time for administration you can manage.


I liked that the hostel was very close to the beach and the atmosphere was great. Being a solo traveler, I found it very easy to socialize and make friends with other travelers here. The hostel itself could have been cleaner, but it's not the dirtiest place I've ever seen.


Great hostel for socializing and chillen. Could be a little cleaner but good for the money and the atmosphere!


Very chilled out hostel in walking distance to lovely beach. Stayed in twin room which was clean and a good size. Common areas and kitchen are conducive to socialising with other travellers. Hostel staff is very helpful and keen to make sure people staying have a good time.
