If you can get it cheap its worth it. However quite far out of town, pretty dirty, beds are rotten, and showers pretty cold. However its a chilled atmosphere, breakfast is fantastic, the staff make great cakes etc., and the view from the communal area's is fantastic- sea view!


This hostel does not deserve to be listed on the website. It is more like a slum. Please for the sake of all potential persons who are unaware, remove this place from your website. This place was filthy and stuffy. I did not even consider staying there after I saw it. It is a serious injustice that people have to pay for such type of place.


O lugar é bonzinho, não tem wifi nem microondas. Tem um cheiro fortissimo de naftalina. O atendimento mais ou menos, o staff na recepção é uma senhorinha que foi bem atenciosa mas não entende nada de informatica e algumas vezes dava informações errandas sobre onibus e lugares.

This felt more like a family stay than a hostel. Tiny hostel (have to crouch to walk under doorways), dirty rooms with NO security (doors/windows don't lock or locks stick), very few guests, poor location, staff don't speak English - would not recommend. Only positive is the daytime view - it actually is on a rock..
