Lovely homey setting super close to beach, shops restaurants and three supermarkets. The hostel is well run with lots of nice touches such as TV lounge area with plenty of DVD options, free WiFi, coffee tea & breakfast. Double w shared bath was a nice size. The hostel is not so big that it gets too crowded. The atmosphere is very chill and comfy. Feels like your staying at a friends house more than a hostel. Parking is free and outside the house and safe.

Our stay overall at the hostel was good. The room was a bit chilly during the night and we requested to rent surf boards early in the morning but the staff member who was supposed to get them ready for us left to go surfing despite telling us he would get the boards for us, therefore we took 2 on our own resulting in one having a strap that did not work properly and would not stay on so we could only use one of the boards. Upon return we let next staff know so she only charged for working one.
