    Awesome hostel with very friendly staff! A special mention of Daniel and Michelle from the reception who were eager to answer questions and always had a welcoming smile! You guys rock!! On the downside I only wished for better Wi-Fi connection. It kept going off every now and then and as expected loads of mosies in the dorms. Overall a great deal for the price paid!

    Pros: Really clean hostal, with a great kitchen (all the equipment u need). Staff really helpful, outside space was lush, amazing breakfast (just as it looks in the pictures),air conditioned rooms pretty close to sea front, and they have free Cocao beans tasters at the reception :). Cons: Maybe at night not the safest of areas, my girlfriends bed had a dip in it.

    The hostel itself is quite nice and clean and not far away from the main parts of the historic town. The staff are generally very nice- mostly the day staff. It’s not a super social hostel so I’d only recommend booking here if you want to chill and have some drinks rather than get smashed. My only complaint is the cleaning staff pulling back the privacy curtain on my bed- without asking- to ask me if I was checking out (I wasn’t) whilst I was feeling ill and trying to sleep. Not so enjoyable.

    We only had a brief stay at the hostel so can’t really comment on the facilities as we didn’t get to experience it. The room was clean but the WiFi password was wrong in the room so we had to go out to reception to confirm it. Not difficult to do but hopefully they printed a new sign

    Overall that hostel is quite and clean. My experience here was marred by a super loud snoring dorm neighbor and poor ventilation in the room.
