    Me and my boyfried stayed in the hostel just for a short time but we really enjoyed it! The people who work there are always helpful..... With our regret we couldn't stay for the sangria night which is supposed to be the funniest night of the week but we really had fun at the barbeque on the esplanade with the other guest. The rooms and the bathrooms are clean and the breakfast is for free .There are also a swimmingpool and a big television so it's hard to get bored. Worth it
