Good hostel for socialising as they organised lots of activities, not dirty but not that clean either. No lockers which was annoying as everyones stuff was everywhere and couldn't keep your stuff safe. More

Good - great location and not too expensive. if you don't plan to spend days in your room it's not too bad. Balconies are pretty cool. Negatives - rooms are extremely cramped and tiny. Every room has a bathroom but it gets a bit messy with water all over the place and is also tiny. Not More

Excellent location just a few minutes walk to everything you need. Felt more like a villa than a hostel with a private bedroom and living room/kitchen. Great for the price! Only downside is lack of wifi in the rooms. Highly recommend this place! More

The hostel is very quiet and good if you want to rest for a night. The reception is exceptionally friendly. The wifi wasn't very good. Own kitchen and bathroom in every room. Didn't meet a lot of people so probably not the best place for traveling alone. Close to town More

Love this place! A bit old but there is a spa, pool, sauna and even a TV in each room. Staff are generally helpful and friendly. Beach, clubs and shops are all walking distance. For a queen size surprise, try ask for bed no 2 when checking in and enjoy more leg room. More

It's a nice and easy going hostel. The kitchen was small, but never busy and easy to work around. The free brekkie is always a nice bonus, even though it's simple. Appreciated the lockers that was provided in the rooms, although we couldn't use the fan since it was absolutely disgusting - More

My bathroom was really dirty but the reception immediately sent someone to clean it when I complained. The beds are comf and the vans are good. The kitchen was spacious and had good facilities. Every night they organize pub crawls and stuff for cheaper prices than in town BOOK WITH THE More

Bathrooms need to be cleaned on a more regular basis... The shared bathroom for three private rooms looked like it needed a good cleaning/facelift. The private room was small but fairly comfortable -- needed more places to hang towels and wet swimwear though. If you aren't looking for a More
