Very relaxed place with a big outdoor area with hammocks and swing chairs to spend the day. Thomas is a great guy who has an answer for all of your questions. There are surfboards and bikes for the guests to use for free. The hostel is situated a 5 minutes outside of the town centre, its only a short walk to a small supermarket and lots of good restaurants. The dorms were clean and had A/C. There is live music with different musicians every other night as well. I would definitely go there again!

We left after 1 night and forfeited our booking - we couldn't take the dingy atmosphere and dirty rooms.

I have stayed here several times over the years and always had a great experience. This year i was so happy to find out that Thomas, a former manager now runs the place. He has made many improvements to the place and also has live music and other events a few nights a week. He is very helpful in every way if you need transportation or info. Great value and superb atmosphere. Check it out, worth the stay 100%.
