    This was a great hostel to stay at. They have common room and guest kitchen, some decent free items for guests too. Everyone who worked there was really nice. The beds were really comfy, had a light and electrical plug, even a usb that actually worked.

    I loved this hostel! the room I stayed in was very clean with a large bathroom. The key cards are bracelets which is really handy and it's very close to the beach. Privacy curtains on the beds make all the difference!

    The place is at very nice location. 5 mins walk to the sea and all the city life. They have their own night club so you do not have to go far for party. The bed was very comfy and clean. They have maintained good security with wrist band to open your room's door and your locker.

    Very nice hostel. They have do luggage storage, but the luggage storage is an open room that anyone can access. I didn't have any issues with my stuff, but it wasn't as secure as I would prefer. Other than, no complaints.

    Good if confusing security and location, the hostel is one large complex split in two and each half is inaccessible to the other. Clean and quality facilities with really comfortable beds. Bunks has everything you could need, outlets, shelf, privacy curtains. Social atmosphere was kind of not there but that mostly because of the off season. Kitchen is there but don’t expect to cook, no stoves and not even a corkscrew for wine.
