The location is great, close to the beach and a few blocks from the main street with shops, bars, & restaurants. I felt safe the whole time. It was relatively quiet. There are only 2 bathrooms for about 20 beds so there was some waiting and they were often dirty with no toilet paper. The Lockers are spacious but the mattresses aren't comfortable. There's no kitchen use and tiny common areas. The wifi is good enough to use the rooms. Overall it's good value but very basic.
