    Really nice hostel! Super clean and the rooms are very nice with curtains. Bathrooms are nicer than many other hostels and it’s a really good kitchen. Not really a social atmosphere as there are no common areas but other than that it’s a great hostel!

    A lovely stay, close enough to tourist attractions and the beach. The supermarket was just down stairs which was super handy, and there was plenty of other shops close by. It did feel a bit of a rip off having to make a €2 payment for bed sheets though. Other than that, it was quite clean and easy to get to.

    Do a favor to yourself and don’t go to this hostel. Honestly I don’t really understand why is good ranked. First Is really expensive and you have to pay a surcharge for some basic services. The laundry service is 15€ (!!). Sencond, The living room is really awful and if you want to take a break from your travel this is not a good place. Third, dorms are mixed, and met a strange guy in my room. Fourth, the showers and toilets are in common, no privacy bc is not well atrucured.

    This truly is the worst hostel experience we had during our 1-year trip. They do not care about their guests, or their own reputation. The check in was really slow. We had to wait 50 minutes and they didn't even say sorry. The receptionist only kept saying that it's her first day. Still not a reason to be unpolite with your guest. Note that the beds do not have blankets. At night there was a fight and even police arrived. After that the owner accidentally locked us in. We could not sleep at all.
