Just 5 mins walk to 1 of 2 metro stations in either direction but surrounding area is rather seedy + unsafe after dark, so use Gloria station: streets are busier. DON´T EXPECT ANY SLEEP on a Thurs, Fri or Sat night (maybe even Sun) because a nightclub is next door. From midnight /1a.m. until at least 6a.m. your room WILL vibrate with noise. Other nights are very quiet. Not all rooms have lockers. 2 internet PCs but only 1 works.My hotel quilt (no cover) had 4 live insects crawling over it! Check

Most staff were very friendly & helpful but JOAO (also known as ROMEO) was exceptionally friendly and helpful to me & all the other guests I saw him interact with. The owner, Paolo, visits most days & is equally helpful & friendly and is always ready to deal with any problem or suggestion. Hostel has lots of character & facilities & is in a very safe area, just 3 mins´walk to the sea/promenade. Many shops are nearby & you can easily get buses to anywhere. You get big lockers & A/C (night only).
