    I was sceptical to stay here after reading some of he reviews, however this place exceeded all expectations! The staff were so lovely, always friendly and up for a chat, the vibe around the hostel was great, always someone to talk to. We had a private room, it was small but everything we needed. And mainly the place was secure with always having to be buzzed in and out of the hostel. Great stay!

    I really recommend this hostel. The location is perfect - just 5 minute walk from the beach - with plenty of nice bars and restaurant around. The rooms and toilets in the main building were good - although I think the toilets and showers in the outside building were worse. The staff were helpful and smiley. Also a great bonus having a pool.

    Twin room was basic but clean and it was fantastic to have air con... Not sure we would have coped without it! We had a shared bathroom which unfortunately had blocked drains during our stay so the bathroom flooded. Pool wasn't the cleanest so I didn't go in but I'm sure you pay a premium for this. Breakfast was good however.

    Showers always hot, good pressure. Toilets not always the cleanest. The location is unrivaled: clean & safe neighbourhood with restaurants, bars & the beach within walking distance. Basic, free breakfast. The pool was great and there are nice common areas in which to meet & socialize with fellow travelers. Pillows are flat & terrible - they gave me neck pains. And BEWARE - they say there is WiFi but it’s SO USELESS that it’s basically non existent. If you value WiFi, do not stay at this hostel!

    Most of the staff were a delight, especially the cleaners, however... the pictures on the advert for the hostel are outdated and the place is slightly run down. I had bed bugs, 1 always dirty shower for 24 people, some very moody and unfriendly staff, repetitive breakfast, TERRIBLE WiFi, a grimey kitchen that’s a constant state, a pool table that was unusable and no system in place to help victims contact police when people were robbed.

    So bad that we had to leave! *Filthy bathroom *V.v. cramped dorms with triple bunks *Rude, unhelpful reception staff who couldn’t care less *no access to pool or kitchen & smoke was blowing into our room as hostel rented out by private party. No one forewarned us of this & we were told that we would have to pay if we wanted to join in.
