This is a novelty place but we wouldn't recommend staying for more than a night. The rooms are small but comfortable. We asked to move room for a better beach view and the staff had no problem with this. It was nice to wake up to the sound of the ocean waves. Parking is available right next to the train and there is a security guard there all night. The shower was huge and had really good pressure. We had to leave early so can't comment on the breakfast.
Very cool concept! Waking up to the sound of the waves - cant beat that! Staff is very friendly
I loved this accomodation. Probably one of the best I've stayed at. Lockers in the room, staff are amazing. Beach front. Hot water not warm hot! I met people who didn't stay here because they thought the train would be too cold. It's not! Well no colder then any other non heated accomodation. You can't get wifi in your room but the wifi does work good in the lobby and resturant!
Cute concept and right on the beach so quite nice during summer. Nice spacious and hot shower despite being on a train...the taps are a bit difficult to use though. It's definitely a novelty accommodation. Don't expect to sleep past 7am though as there are no sound barriers, especially when you have inconsiderate neighbours and cleaning ladies. Also, no heating during winter and I'm guessing no AC during summer. Nice personnel. Would be nice if there was a common room with sofas and a TV.
Hostel was lovely. Definitely what I expected and enjoyed the setting in a train. The only thing they could improve would be the sinks in the bathrooms. The taps make it absolutely impossible to wash your face without spraying water all over the place.
Great idea, lots of potential, needs some renovation work in places. Worth the money we paid.
We stayed here for one night and was clean and cosy, though cramped as expected. Nice position by the beach and good restaurant attached to train. Wifi available in restaurant and town within walking distance.
Great location and enjoyed the sunrise in bed
