    Good Location, as you are in 5 min at the beach to swim or to find some restaurants. 5 min more you find the boardwalk area with lots of bars and restaurants. We only found a Mini-Supermarket around the corner. the house itself is cool, the private rooms nice, the pool great. Kitchen could have more cups, etc, but it is great to cook togehter or to have a small talk if someone is cooking, as there is a sofa beside. Mixed guests, not only backpackers.

    Nice place and great to have a pool. Sadly it rained when we were there. Not much of an atmosphere but not the hostels fault.

    Not bad, but not great. The shower door would not close and there was something wrong with the shower drain.

    I lost my phone in the locked room and no one seemed to be able to take responsibility, But the staff had access to the room. It's so disappointing, however the rooms were clean and it's close to all amenities.

    Dead atmosphere, staff not very friendly, beds look like they were made by a 6 year old, barely any sockets. Good location tho.

    Had heard good things about this hostel hence decided to stay here, but what a mistake. I had paid extra for a female dorm and was given the last bedroom in a mixed dorm which had less than half a metre between the ceiling and the bed. Loud music was playing half the night and when this died down the TV went on at 3am at full volume, resulting in people in my dorm going to down to complain twice. When I told the staff they said guests sign a form so should know better to be quiet after 9.30pm...
