This location was great! Being next to the beach was absolutely great. The staff is nice can't really complain, just make you keep your card that has you name and room number on it bc you need it to get in for security reasons. Lite breakfast is served and there is also a restaurant/cafe that serves meals as well. Great experience overall and the location is 10 plus stars!

We really enjoyed our stay at the Equity Point Sea hostel, it's the most convenient location - right at the beach!, the city sightseeings are easily reachable by public transport or by walking. The personnel were nice and professional. Here are some things that we'd like to mention: 1) For the mixed dorm bathrooms, how about some hooks on the walls? 2) Padlocks should be available for RENT 3) Sheets are good, but blankets won't hurt too 4) Breakfast included - loved it!

I had an amazing time! I met a lot of people. And being so close to bars and the beach is really cool! I would definitely come back.


Right on the beach. Nice staff except the overnight guy was very rude and refused to call us a cab. Basic hostel. However the 'rooms' are divided by thin walls with bunk beds on either side. So you hear everything that's going on in the other rooms. Loud drinking and music until 1am makes it hard to sleep. And being waken up at 3am because of the squeaky bed of drunk kids fooling around.


This is a relatively new hostel right on the seafront. It is very clean, quiet and comfortable with a really good breakfast included in the price and good beds and showers. The staff are very helpful and there is also free internet. The only problem that I had was the difficulty in finding the hostel as the directions given were very vague and people in the area did not know where it was even though it was located in a tall brightly painted building.


Amazing Hostel to who wants stay on the beach for sure is the best one! The Staffs are lovely and friendly. About the facilies I didn't have wifi in my room. At the reception was good but not in my room.


Very glad to have stayed at this hostel. Very close to the beach as well.


Location is excellent. Staff could be a little friendlier.

the only good thing about this hostel is the location its right on the beach, other then that the walls don't reach the ceiling( theres like a 40cm gap) so you can hear everything and i me and other room mates couldn't get to sleep till law and we got woken up very early every morning. security is awful room mate got the phones and other personal things stolen. i stayed two nights then changed.


we had a very great time! the location is great as the beach is in front of the door!! i can recommend to stay there for some days... but: the rooms are really small for like 9 people and we were shocked that there was no possibility to open the windows- there is only air condition...but actually we got used to it. for some days it is ok, but for longer it might give you cold...we were annoyed by the fact that sheets+blankets and a lock had to be purchased extra. all in all it was fine! :)
