Really great location walkable to all of the main sights in the city. Wifi was not great and didn't work most of the time.

A 44 bed dorm is not a suitable room size for a hostel. The 8 bed cubicles were cramped and insecure, the room was bright and incredibly noisy and the size makes it incredibly likely to have someone snoring and someone smelling of BO affecting the whole dorm. No room keys so anyone can go anywhere once inside and the clientele the 44 bed dorm attracts detract from any atmosphere the hostel could have. Should not have an option for "mixed dorm" - change it to "couples dorm".

Very good hostel experience! Very clean, bed was very comfortable. Staff at front desk extremely helpful. The location is awesome, just 5-10 minutes walk to all major attractions in downtown.

A good hostel for overnight. Walking distance from bus station and close to all downtown activities. Big dorms but well laid out. Airy and clean. Facilities basic but adequate. A bit noisy from the streets outside but that's not the fault of the hostel operators. Good if you are an ok sleeper, could be would be hard if you are not a good sleeper.

Great place BUT the noise from the bar over the road at night was mad. Especially between 12 and 3 am, when thier custermers linned up waiting for a taxi home, what a din, people screeming, laughing and shouting, so very loud I could not sleep.

The staff is really great! The hostel is located very close to the sea, downtown, close to the main interesting places! The dormitories are well done and quiet, the kitchen is big and very practical, there are big common rooms. And the staff guided me very well for activities transport info, shops... I recommend this hostel 100%!
