This hostel is brand new thus all the facility are in good condition, however should you need to get to town its about 10 minutes drive away.
Location, location, location. Some hostels have it and some don´t and this hostel definitely doesn´t, unless you have a car. It´s relatively far from the center, hiking, the waterfront and the nearest bus stop. Also, the neighborhood just doesn´t really feel safe, especially walking from the bus stop. Also, the staff sit and watch TV all day so it´s kind of awkward to watch TV sometimes. Other than those two complaints, this hostel is very, very cute, clean, comfortable and well put together.
Very clean and comfortable bedding. I really enjoyed my stay. Thank you very much for a very comfortable and clean atmosphere.

The hostel was clean and modern, with nice places to sit, and a lovely outdoor area with a patio and chairs to sit in. We had a double room that was clean and bright, and the bathrooms were new and clean. There was no breakfast provided though. The staff were really helpful, and friendly too. The area wasn't the best - there were bars and restaurants on the main street, but it wasn't amazing.
