Nice atmosphere. The toilets bathrooms are in need of some kind of renovation...


Basically this is not really a backpackers hostel, more like a house for polish immigrants. The showers had no privacy and were not particularly nice. The rooms smelled of mildew. But the beds were quite comfy and quiet. But it was reasonably cheap.


My bed had bedbugs, the sheets were not clean. Really strange atmosphere in the hostel as there were no travellers there. Only long term residents. When we were packing up the police arrived to pick up one of the residents for questioning, did not get the accusations though. There were 2 members of the staff that were lovely and helpful, the girl that checked us is had no idea we were coming, could not find out booking and did not realise we were two.

Owner Comment (Hide)
We pride ourselves on providing a safe, fun and clean environment for our guests. Cleanliness is extremely important to us with clean sheets being provided to all guests upon check in and with five hours of cleaning being performed everyday by our dedicated cleaning team. We are always reviewing and updating our possessors to try to provide the best service for our guests and we are very sorry and sad to learn that on this occasion you did not enjoy your stay with us as much as we would expect.


This hostel is like a big family due to the fact that half the people live there long term so be prepared for cluttered rooms. All the people in my room were very friendly but there wasn't much room for my bags or any locks on doors or any lockers. Wifi worked well and nice big couches to relax on and good laundry and kitchen facilities. Location is near the beach and short walk to shops.


The only reason i liked it here was because the atmosphere. Most of the people in the hostel live there and the girls room was a bit of a jungle. The hostel did not feel really clean to me. The people who live there are verry nice though!
