Good position and great view of the city, wide building, heaps of areas for staying outside but with a narrow kitchen, overcrowded most of the time. Good for long stay people.


This hostel was OK just didn't like having to go outside and upstairs to get back into the main building to have a shower and use the toilet. There were no bars or locks on the window in my room so anyone could get in and I also think my bed was broken as every time I made the slightest movement it would make a loud screech. The only good thing about the hostel is the staff were friendly and helpful, they had a free bus to the city and there are loads of restaurants just 5-10 mins walk away.


Staff was really awesome and helpful. Nice pool, chill rooms, reliable shuttle. Could do with more showers, and the guests got pretty loud at night, but overall it was a decent place to stay.


Quite nice hostel, well organized. Despite it is not really in the centre, the area is very nice, lots of bars, pubs, restos and markets.


Very good location. Cool relaxed hostel.


the room floor was so covered with peoples possessions it was hard to get thtough without stepping on peoples things, the light in the room stayed on till 4am, it was noisy with talking and singing till 4.30am with thin walls.

The place is near a street with lots of restaurants and bars and they provide shuttles to the city center. Very affordable option in such an overpriced destiny. They upgraded us in the arrival, which was really good.


The staff was very friendly and helpful. The shuttle bus service is a big plus. I came here twice and I hadnt had any problems at all. Nice atmosphere and nice located.


The staff was great, the bus to and from the city is a really good idea, the location is pretty good (close to lots of restaurants, shopping, and the beach) and the atmosphere is pretty fun. My only complaints would be the cleanliness. The kitchen was cleaned everyday but never seemed clean (not the fault of the hostel, it's the fault of the guests who don't clean up after themselves) and the beds/pillows could probably stand to be replaced. Otherwise it was a great time!


It was a fun place to stay!


The good thing about this hostel was the kitchen, it was well equipped and very clean and the rest was also pretty good. But the beds was terrible, I got one 5 inch mattress and it was like sleeping in a big hole, it was so uncomfortable. If you really need a good sleep then pick another hostel. But on the other, it was very easy to meet people


Staff very helpfull. Great option of shuttle to town or supermarket. Good size of kitchen.
