Great location, right on the beach. We had 2 bedrooms with an adjoining kitchen which was perfect for what we wanted. The owner was incredibly helpful and recommended 2 really good restaurants and was very informative about the area. Really enjoyed our experience here!


Great hostel, except for the beds. I think I broke my back during the night.
