Crowd can change drastically making this hostel go fom mellow to party-town in a day, but be aware that EVERYTHING (including the courtyard) is shut down at 11pm. No amenities (wifi, breakfast, etc) but great location. In room lockers are nice and necessary.

Nice clean rooms, a bit loud at any time if the TV is on in the lounge / kitchen! Good location, decent global gossip wifi and showers pretty good

Great place with a great atmosphere but it was very unclean especially the kitchen and the showers. Although the facilities and everything else were amazing the uncleanliness meant I probably wouldn't stay here again.

Rooms were nice, hard to get fresh air in tho. Right next to outdoor common area, with music blasting every night until 11pm at least. Very comfortable matresses and big lockers. Bathroom area below expectations, only 1 of 3 stalls was in good condition. Small kitchen area and very small common indoor area. Free internet is 1 PC for the whole hostel. Free wifi available at the library where all backpackers go... Reception staff very helpful with booking tours.

They promise "free Internet" but only have one computer to use where it works, which is always always occupied or didn´t work when it was my turn. So don´t fall for that (I did, that´s why I booked with them). They promise free kayaks, but again only have one which was checked out all the time. Other than that: very friendly stuff, extremly clean (and it´s a lot of ppl staying there, coming and going). So thanky you for that! Big plus: swiming pool!

Liked: Close to the beach, big lockers in the room. Disliked: Bad value for money - Instable bunk beds, no free kayaks, just one computer with free internet for everyone. Kitchen was rather dirty, bed sheets weren't always changed after people checked out. People were loud till late. Would not stay there again.
