Very nice place to stay which is central to all the pins and restaurants and just a short walk to the pier. Hostal was very clean and had free tea and coffee and a welcoming atmosphere.

I loved my stay in the hostel. We had a beautiful double room. I think the staff were excellent, very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. there is a curfew of 1.30 pm which is good as people are not coming in at all times. My husband has stayed there a few times and we will definitely stay there again.

There was a sink and mirror in the dorm which was really nice. It's a classy place to stay and feels cozy, just a tad strong on the incense in the hallway. I woke up around 2am and the street view from my room was enchanting with the lamp-post lighting. We didn't get to use the kitchen but it looked well equipped. I'd enjoy staying here again.

When they say that reception closes at seven, they really mean reception closes at seven. Got in a little late because of our hike and had to wait an hour and a half to get checked in. Also, there is a curfew at 1:30am. Just be aware.

Thank you for your comments. Everything you have said is correct and explained on this website so guests are and should be aware of these points. The curfew is in place so everyone has a good night's sleep. Warm Regards, Aoife

you have no lockers and no keys for the sleeping dorms. during the day no staff at the hostel but everyone can go in there and enter the dorms (made my experience). no safety for your luggage at all, otherwise the kitchen is great, showers and everything are fine too! the staff is great, when someone's at the hostel of course..

Thank you for your comments...we do have storage for your luggage if you had asked. We also state that we don't have a 24 hour Reception, but it is family-run so we are onsite if you need us. It is a pity you scored the staff a 6 when you say they are great. We hope you will come back and we can lock your luggage away in a safe place for you. Warm Regards, Aoife.
