Had high hopes for JJ's based on their Hostel World profile, but did not enjoy our stay here whatsoever. The room felt like a cell, didn't even get a bed sheet to sleep under so had to use our own beach towels! The kitchen was tiny and all the pans and crockery etc were smelly and old. Too far from town as well, so we're glad we only booked one night as we couldn't have stayed longer!
Had a really great stay at jjs, incredibly helpful and friendly staff! Perfect location just outside of town so it!s nice and quiet and peaceful and only a 15 minute scenic walk along the esplanade to town. Can't recommend it enough, if i'm in area again will defiantly be staying.
Pretty decent hostel with a fantastic atmosphere. Owners were real nice but the guys staying there especially the long term stayers were awesome. Jackie boy! Shout out to him! ;-) Facilities were average so no complaints there. It was a bit far out of the centre though but the free shuttle service they provide is really helpful.
