We showed up at check in time. Management was not there. We waited a few hours and no one showed up so we went elsewhere to find accommodation.

Nice Hostel! Great Location, right next to the Beaches! There is a Bar right next to it and a little store! So you got everything you need around! And the Hostel and the stuff by itself were nice as well! Would stay again!

We had high recommendations however it seemed as though ownership has changed and the hostel has not been kept up. The hostel has been riding the high ratings from the old ownership yet not maintaining quality. However, rooms are spacious and location is great (close to beach!!), that being said, 2/3 shower heads were broken and toilet paper was not refilled for 36 hours. No locks on the room doors (broken and not fixed) as well as one locker provided between five people. No group activities :(

Family run hostel, great value for money and awesome location for a beach getaway. Outdoor common rooms are great, twin kitchens so plenty of space, but not always the cleanest or best appointed. Wifi anywhere but the reception room is basically non-existent, and bathroom facilities are limited and not the best. Didn't like the attitude of the young fella working there but the owner is a cool guy. Would stay again (its okay, and it's cheap), but not the most professional hostel I've stayed.

Owner was nice and helpful. Close to nice beaches but a 20 min walk from the city centre. Only one bathroom per floor. Expensive for facilities.

Only security was the front door which guests had to lock with a key which nobody ever did. The lockers were not inside the room and my key opened more than one locker. Only two showers and toilets, they were clean but the hook was broken for one of the shower heads so you had to hold it yourself. 2 min walk from beach however it's a bit far from town, especially for a solo female wanting a drink at night. No bar but balcony and rooftop good social spots. Staff lovely. Overall would recommend.
