We loved the spacious outside sitting areas in the back (away from the street) where we could enjoy our self-prepared meals and chat with other guest. We met a lot of interesting people from around the world and had a lot of fun. Due to the elevation (~1400 feet) it's pleasantly cool, but still warm enough to sit in a t-shirt at night. One disadvantage is that there is nothing one can do without a car, not even a short evening stroll. However there are plenty of nice places within a short drive.

I have never met an owner that unfriendly before. if you book a 6-beds dorm, be ready to stay in a 16 beds-dorm. also, if you need a ride somewhere, if the owner proposes you to drive you, be ready to pay the price ! oh and if you check out, there's nowhere you can leave your luggage in a safe place while enjoying your last day there (or the public reception became one ?). I have been refused to take a shower after a stay at the beach before my 40 hours journey back home.
Great little hostel in an excellent location if you have a car and want to be close to the best snorkelling spots in the island, we booked 2 dorms beds and got a 2 bed dorm all to ourselves! The owner is very helpful with lots of useful information about activities and printed out directions ready to go to the best locations! Great kitchen and seating areas overlooking the sea and sunset! Very clean and great value! Wishes we'd stayed longer! Thanks
As we arrived the owner welcomed us and informed that non of us (group of 11 people) is not getting what we booked for.I was offered mixed dorm with amount of bed exceeding 10(lost count) instead what I booked mixed dorm for 8.There was three double rooms booked only one of them was delivered,rest had to stay together. The owner refused in a rude manner to open bathroom for the only person who booked single room en suite.Owner rude and yelling at me.Kitchen closed at 10 pm so are showers.
