I really missed the lockers there.

Strict, 'zero tolerance' rules about alcohol and noise (which you get a copy of at check-in and which are posted), but there is no one there during the night to enforce them. People burst into the room at 4 in the morning throwing a football around. I was dragged out of bed by a drunken fool and nearly got in a fight. I was lucky enough to be moved to a more civilized and friendly room. I would have left immediately but every other hostel was booked the next night. I will not be back.


I already wrote to Hostelworld regarding this hostel, but didn't get any reply


The place is in an awesome location, close to the beach and to main stuff like supermarket, post office and nice bars. The wifi is expensive, it's mainly full of Irish workers and the security guard is far from friendly.. but the two girls that work there are very friendly and helpful. There is no proper common area to meet new people except a tight kitchen and a outside barbecue area that for some reason seems to be always chained up

It's a great location, clean and friendly staff. There is no communal area, except the kitchen or in the big back garden where you're sure to meet some friendly faces. Had a mix of short & long term stayers. Not a party hostel, but there are plenty of other places to go and party :)
