Really liked this hostel due to its uniqueness. Great location right on the beach front with a bar serving nice food on the balcony looking over the beach.


Good spot but sleep in small trains room and oldie place : quiet bingo at night ^^


Good location but let down by the accommodation, booked a Deluxe Room with En Suite, ended up with the Caboose Holiday Suite which was definately not Deluxe.

To stay this way in a train was really a good experience. We had a very nice decorated train room, but very little space to put anything somewhere. But for two days no problem. The breakfast was ok. I was very disappointed from the reception. No smile, no communication. They were not very friendly. But this spot is so extraordinary, maybe they don't have to be friendly.

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.
