Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi, it was great having you stay with us. You are always welcome to come and visit again. Thank you for the kind comments.


Friendly staff, place is located pretty much in the city center where most attractions are (though the beaches are a couple miles away).

Hi Samuel, thanks for the comment. It was great having you.


I was only here for the night, but they waited for me to arrive and got me all checked in and checked out very easily. The bed was really comfortable for a hostel especially. The kitchen was nice and open and was kept clean even that late in the day. It seems like a good location, and close to the city center.


Only stayed one night, but had a good time!
