    Spent a week here and felt at home. The staff have been so friendly and helpful. Would and will definitely come back. The pool area is really nice with three long tables under cover where everyone chills out playing beer pong ect. Kitchen facilities are great and the games room area was also really nice. Location was amazing right on the beach with a corner shop 30 seconds away. RECOMMEND!!

    Very Good

    Really messy check-in, myself and another guy were waiting 20 minutes to check in, staff were too busy gossiping out the back, front desk left unattended. No apology or "thank you for waiting" from the tall guy that finally checked me in. Key didn't fit in the door to the room, so I had to go all the way back down stairs. No where to store anything securely (locker), no air-conditioning, mattress was thin so I could feel the metal bars through it and the bedding had a background smell.

    No soap in the room bathroom, unacceptable at the best of times let alone in a global pandemic. Loud music played from 10am-10pm everyday that can be heard in the rooms.

    We had a very uncomfortable stay here. Staff were friendly, but the rooms were dirty, the bathroom had nowhere to hang your stuff up and was dirty (with mould in th shower), it was loud and too hot to sleep, as there was only a not very effective fan in the room.

    This hostel is predominantly staff and therefore creates quite a bitchy and unwelcoming atmosphere for guests. I overheard nasty conversations about guests / what they had requested. Id say about 20 - 25 staff live there permanently, which for such a small hostel doesn’t make much sense. The receptionist mariella could be heard drunkenly screaming in the middle of the night, i also witnessed her try and strangle another staff member on reception. Completely unprofessional and quite disturbing

    Checked in first night, got shown to an unmade dirty bed. Couldnt sleep, as there was no AC or Fan in the room and was very damp. Had to sleep with the door open, felt very insecure, lots of noise from the surroundings too. Beds was very uncomfy, woke up to find oreos between the mattress and bedsheet. Asked to get this fixed, got put in a room with somewhat of a tower/standing fan which wasnt convenient as if youre on the top bunk, its of no use. Rooms were pretty dirty too. Not the best place.

    Pretty shocking place, dirty, dingy. It’s great for people that want to go out every night, but if you want a decent nights sleep I’d find somewhere else. We had to find alternate accommodation, and was told we could receive a refund and then they wouldn’t give it to us. I wouldn’t even bother emailing them because you’ll only get a snotty response. The location is great but that pretty much it. I have to say the staff at the hostel are nice, just the guy I emailed was arrogant and disrespectful
