It was fine to stay one night and it was also cheap. You can hear everything that is happening outside because of the thatched roof. Besides that it looked really cute and was very clean.
The main draw back for the place is really that it is effectively located opposite a night club/wine bar that doesn't turn off its very loud music until 2am most nights. Other than that it is a nice place and located very close to the center of the town.
The Hostel was OK. The owner Martin is very friendly and nice. BUT there is a night club next by which is so loud every night. Its not possible to find sleep between 11-4 o'clock in the morning. I slept in a lot of different accommodation but this one is definitely one of the loudest. Recommendation for young party people cause its quite cheap and they can party every night.No recommendation for couple who wants to chill out. Internet only works in the front of the hostel. Not in all rooms!
Excellent staff, great stay, & I'd recommend it to others. Bring earplugs or something similar if you have the ground floor private-room-with-shared-bathroom. It's right next to a very popular restaurant/bar, and even with the window closed you can hear every word of conversation from the staff & clients. Because of the very, very close proximity to the restaurant, we never opened the window or the curtain, which was the only thing I didn't like about the room. Everything else was great.
