    Probably the best location you can get, its right by the beach, close to surf (advanced surfing), big supermarkets and so on. The kitchen is amazing, a lot of stoves and gear. Its a chill hostel with great atmosphere and I loved the Common areas, there a lot of them. It also had a terrace with a view of the waves, was beautiful. We stayed at the Feels hostel too but this one was much better. Recommend!!

    Considering that I stayed here off-season, this was a very cool place. Right near the beach. Plenty of outdoor and indoor space to socialize. Nice little bar and café.

    Recommended! Super relaxed and chilled atmosphere in the cozy common area. Easy to meet other travelers and to relax the whole day. Comfortable beds with lockers in the spacious rooms. Nice rooftop terrace with view to the sea. Well equipped kitchen. Good location: 2 minutes to the beach, 5-10 minutes to the supermarket and city center. Bads are rather small and basic but sufficient. Enclosed café offers breakfast, snacks and lunch/dinner. Would love to stay longer :)

    A really good place with good location, well spaced out bedrooms and good communal areas. The negative is that it's expensive considering there is no breakfast included!!

    The hostel is really cool and the staff were nice. They let us use the facilities and keep our things there whilst we went to the beach on the last day etc. Only comment is that when I raised the question about the pile of black dots that looked like bugs on my bed, the answer was 'oh that's just what the bugs in the ceilings drop as they eat through the wood'... Not exactly ideal to have a termite infested hostel room.

    The bathroom is quite uncomfortable, but the location is the best. In the third floor terrace you can see the sea.

    Nice hostel with a good atmosphere. Unfortunattely our first room smelt a bit weird (like the smoke of many cigarettes). After complaining a few times we received a new room.

    I slept all of maybe 4 hours total in our 2 nights here due to *bed bugs* in the big dorm!!! The staff were really good and fast to react changing us to a different room for the second night and also washed all of our clothes for free. Being such a big hostel it does get dirty very quickly despite the cleaners cleaning regularly. Good atmosphere and facilities though, heaps of good common areas. Staff are friendly. Great location right next to beach and walking distance to bars/shops. Aq

    The hostel is located right next to the beach which is nice. There is a strange gate system where you wait for ages for someone to open the gate for you..(I guess it’s secure). The bedroom was very dark and dingy and in serious need of refreshment. The bathroom was quite dirty and there was no hot water. The kitchen was well equipped but all the cupboards smell like mould. I would say it’s an ‘ok’ stay for a night but not any longer.

    Pros: Good location, cute common area Cons: Everything else. The biggest being the two bathrooms on the second floor. NO HANDLE, anyone can enter and see you shower and there was dirt mop just under the sink. Reception tried to convince us to accept one of the beds that had clearly been slept on. He didn’t know what to do so he tried calling someone (owner?) when all he had to do was clean the sheets! Another worker saved the night when she said she would change them after waiting 20 mins!
