The free pancake breakfast is not what it seems. you got one hard boiled egg and an english muffin. There was pancake mix available if you wanted to make your own pancake. There was no lock on the dorm rooms. The owner does not give those living in their dorms privacy and can invade their personal space. Ex. she comes into the dorm room and starts cleaning and opening windows and whatnot when people are still sleeping... animals at this hostel too.


It feels more like a homestay than a hostel. The owner is always around and comes into the room without knocking. She installed the AC at midnight for example (but it was nice that she installed it though). The house itself is nice. In a way it looks like a hotel inside. The kitchen is good. The breakfast is a bit more than the basic hostel bf. The location is great. Downtown and 10min to the beach. All in all an okay place if you don't mind feeling having the owner around.


We stayed there for 4 nights and didn't like it so much... The person who managed everything came into the room everyday while we re still sleeping and told us to clean our room, although it wasn't messy and nobody in the room said anything etc... All in all we would not recommend this place!


This hostel is misrepresented on the website. I was suppose to have a private room and shared bathroom. I was in the basement with the bathroom facilities on the third floor--shared with the entire hostel. The room, itself, was a tiny, dank room with lose wires hanging out of the wall and the light switch for the room was outside the room. 1 serviceable looking out at the yard dirt. Breakfast served between 8-9 only; consisted of one piece of toast and one soft boiled egg. Don't stay here!


Great little place only 10 minute walk from the beach.


I liked the staff, very friendly. Cozy environment and good location.

Little work on a kitchen, too much furniture in our room (we can not move arround).
