    Great hostel with a large cafe/ bar area, including indoor and outdoor seating across two levels. A lot of locals populate the cafe/ bar in the evenings, and during the day it's a pretty quiet place if you have to do some work. I enjoyed the location, a short walk from a pretty public beach and about 10 minutes from the central harbor area. It was easy to find grocery stores, restaurants, etc. Beds are comfy and in their own pods, so more private than any other hostel I've stayed at.

    This is one of the best hostel I’ve stayed in Europe. Clean, relaxed and comfy. Shoutout to all the staff and the girls that work there , they make you feel really welcomed and try to help with everything. The location is a bit far from the old town but once you are there you realize this is a good thing as the beach is still close and you are away from the crowded and expensive areas, also there are many bars and restaurants around. The cafe/bar at the hostel is also nice and has good prices

    Great hostel, the staff is amazing, so nice and helpful ❤️ The design of the rooms is great, it’s very comfortable and you have privacy! The only thing is the hostel isn’t as social as I wish it would have been, but I still had an amazing stay!
