The location is just perfect, behind the church and on top of the cliff overlooking the ocean (tip: if you want to watch the sunset, just wake up and get out, the viewpoint is one minute from the hostel). The breakfast was good and the staff was super nice. The only thing was the door of the dorm - if you closed it from inside, the ones outside could not open it, if you closed it from the outside you locked in those who were inside. So when the dorms are full it's not too practical.


The staff is very frendly and helpfull. It's a relaxing and social environment, easy to meet new people. Hade a great time. Thanks 😄


muito obrigado senhoras, a minha estadia foi incrível, e tão relaxante! reservado para 2 noites e se hospedaram 6!


Breath of fresh air arriving here and meeting Phelia. This was fantastic meeting her and spending time here, I stayed an extra 2 nights and wish I had stayed more. All questions were welcomed and any help the staff could give they did including arranging a hire car for us. I miss Phelia already and would highly recommend staying here. Lots of laughs and great memories.


Such a great place! Stayed way longer than I planned because of the wonderful hosts and laid back vibe. Lots of space to hang out and great location. I really didn't want to leave. Thank you so much for the excellent stay:)


Staff mega friendly! Helped with tours, local food and drink places and helped create a great atmosphere! No lockers
