Seemingly the only place where wifi isn't free anymore. Nice array of activities to choose from. Great location. Staff could be a little more passionate. No lockers.


One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in!


Buccaneers is a great choice for anybody with any budget. Great people, great atmosphere and some really good cooks! Right by the beach where you can run, take long walks or go horseback riding - apart from doing all the water stuff, of course :-) You will love it!

I mostly enjoyed the fact that the hostel was in a safe place and right next to the beach.


Unfriendly Host, small beatles on the bed


A great place to stay :-) It is located a little bit in the middle of nowhere, but very close to the beach and embedded in a beautiful landscape. Staff is very nice and helpful. They organise funny activities (including free wine). The candle-lit dining area is just great and the bar is lively and very sociable. One of the few minus pionts is that the rooms could be cleaner, but the breathtaking view from the balcony recompensates for that. Can definitely recommend it.
