    Overall a very nice place. The only thing I could criticise is that there weren't many bathrooms or toilets for the amount of people and that the small kitchen wasn't very well equipped for cooking. Very nice staff, great location, good atmosphere. I had a fun weekend :)

    I stayed at this hostel for 10 nights just because I did not want to move around as the location was simply amazing, also a great value for money, on the other hand the dorm room was very noisy and there was no privacy at all, 2 plugs in a 8-bed dorm, overall the hostel lacked the atmosphere you would expect in a hostel in this beatiful city.

    Great location really near the metro, supermarkets and restaurants. The atmosphere was quite quiet when we made our visit but it may change with the time of year you go. Rooms are good, unfortunately we had some rude people who would always turn the lights on in the middle of the night but that’s just bad luck not the hostels fault. Overall just a standard hostel.

    To many stairs. I stayed in a room without windows, like a basement. Corridors too narrow.

    Hostel is ok. I realise it is a beach hostel so sand will end up in the rooms but we checked in at 2pm to a filthy bathroom. It was cleaned the next day but for the amount of traffic the hostel has it needs 2 per day. No toilet paper replaced on the 2nd day too. The Wifi was pretty average too, only working intermittently. Majority of the staff were friendly though.

    Good location but there was no water in the entire hostel from 9pm onwards during the night I stayed- was told it would come on within 30 minutes but never did. Really inconvenient when it’s so hot and you want to wash off your sun cream and insect repellent. Window in the room also wouldn’t close Breakfast was ok but personally wouldnt want to stay here again.
