    Really nice chill vibes. Great clean pool and easy to sunbathe and relax. Super friendly staff. Not busy so quiet at night but also can party as they offer cheap bar crawls etc. Good cheap food offer as well. Everywhere pretty clean. Decent breakfast. Kitchen is very small but because it wasnt a busy place didn't cause an issue. 2 min walk from beach and shops/bars/restaurants etc.

    Generally excellent little hostel! Nice courtyard and games on in the evening. Great place to get to know people. Staff are mostly lovely, however some were quite rude when asked to do things to assist you. The parking is technically free, but it’s just on the road outside and you can be ticketed if wardens cover the area. You’d have to move your car every 3 hours between 8am-5pm. The food and drink deals are excellent and the location is fab.
