I had a great time here


Quite a good hostel to just party. Having the beach and all the bars, cafés and restaurants close by it located .So for lunch you have to prepare it the day before or manage to get your stuff to cook before they close the reception - quite annoying. Moreover, bed bugs. Not really complaining about that but more about how they managed to get rid of them - by doing nothing. Letting me change the room wasn't a solution at all. Facilities are ok

We have never been treated so rudely or experienced anything like we did at this hostel. Our deposit wasn't taken off the balance and then we were threatened with having to pay over and above what we were meant to. We've stayed in heaps of hostels all through Europe and made changes to our bookings with no issue so no idea why this place thinks it can treat people like that. Would never stay again.
