    Great location, on one of the busy streets leading down to the shore. Some of the staff seem super nice and friendly, happy to chat to anyone, while others are less enthusiastic. Reception is closed in the afternoon, which I don't understand and they do seem a little disorganised, but it didn't affect my stay at all. The showers are GREAT considering you're in a hostel, really gets that sand out of your hair! There seem to only be two ladies toilets altogether though...
