The shower was tiny and it was a bit out of the way, but with the price you couldn't really expect more.


The Alchemist Hostel is a nice place to stay with a good atmosphere among the staff and people staying, especially thanks to a big outdoors (but under roof) kitchen with sofas and tv to chill out, watch movies, read, and play with the cats. Compared to the other hostels we were in during our trip, this one was the most "backpackers" type, meaning that the room and facilities were very basic but fine. We think we could have taken a place closer to the beach, but it's, overall, a good place.
