    My stay in this hostel was litterally the worst I have ever had. The place is dirty as a trashcan, it looks like it hasn't been cleaned in ages. The staff allowed a party to take place in the court which is in the middle of the hostel with all the rooms facing towards it. I didn't sleep a minute. Not even one member of the staff went to say anything. Location is fine, close to the beach front. In conclusion; do not go there. I will never return.
