    We were made to feel very welcome, we loved the fact the hostel was right on the beach. We loved the shop next door and the recommendations for the local pubs and food was spot on. Our only gripe would be the room was not fantastically clean and despite recognising its a very old building it could do with a bit of an update and some TLC. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly and we loved the fact that breakfast was when you got up! Great coffee and great owners!
