The site on the gorgeous coast makes this a drop dead stunning location. But that aside, the careful, thoughtful organization and communication of the rules creates a great atmosphere of security and ease. In addition, the interior pain colors and decor is tasteful and restful, and home like rather than institutional. This is a remarkable property, and very well-run. It is a pleasure to be here. Anne

Friendly, helpful staff. Wonderful, quiet location with some history. It may pay to see if Garmin would modify their Sat nav to direct users to the coastal side of the highway, and not as with me to your neighbours over the road, they said it happens frequently.

I had an incredible overnight stay, the location couldn't be beat and it the vibe was perfect. Being able to walk out the door and down a path to the cliffs and beach were perfect. Breakfast in the kitchen, overlooking the Pacific, majestic. The girls who worked there were very helpful, gave a good run down of the hostel, etc.
