Great hostel could have done with a kitchen or more food options than just pizza. Only black mark on the stay was a guy who snored like a train in the room. If you snore chronically do not book a room with 12 other people you will keep up all night. Not a reflection on the hostel though just a general comment.
After 2 months of staying in hostels this place was by far the worst. no atmosphere, and there were not enough toilets/showers to accommodate everyone. top floor showers were TERRIBLE. i'm a short person and my head hit the showerhead. beds were phenomenally uncomfortable. the common room was constantly chockers because it was the only place the wifi worked (that you were allowed to use it, also worked on the stairs but you'd get kicked off them). The kitchen was tiny and there is no fridge.
The staff were great, breakfast was great, location was great. Only downside was sketchy wifi in the mornings when everyone is trying to use it. lots of people trying to buy tickets without much success. would definitely go back tho.
Only thing I would have liked extra was a kitchen. other than that, the beds were made daily, and the staff were fantastic. we arrived at 6am on the day of check in and the night guy let us chill in the bar and nap/read until breakfast. definitely recommend it but book early! heaps of people were trying to get reservations on the day and there was nothing left.
We stayed for one night as it was close to the plaza, however if you need to get sleep (we had to be up at 4am for a flight the next day) i wouldnt recommend it, we couldnt fully close the windows so had the noises from the street coming up through the window all night.
Staff were phenomenal. It's a surf house, so lots of people in and out from the beach all day. great location, would definitely come back again!!!
We'd been double booked and were moved to another place down the road. Another woman who lived in the building was telling me how the hostel was dirty and not very well run. No reception to speak of, we got lucky another group arrived at the same time and could let us in the building.
