    Great hostel on the waterfront! The staff were absolutely lovely. They were really accommodating and fun. I loved that they had a hot tub and a sauna. The gentleman on the desk recommended an absolutely hilarious place with hot pools that did not disappoint either. Activities everyday. Beautiful view. Nothing to complain about!

    Awesome staff, perfect location. It's a very friendly place where you can share activities with other backpackers. Clean and quiet, common area is heated, books available and board games. Spacious kitchen with plenty of utensils. Blankets available for colder nights.

    Great place to stay. Nice communal courtyard, use of sauna and hot tub, which was awesome. Available surfboards to hire and electric car for use to beach is a great idea. Nice dining and lounge for chilling out. Rooms clean, nice to have proper mattress too and a blanket additional to the duvet for the chillier nights. Staff friendly and helpful. Just couple of things to improve-a little more space for cooking-only two ovens and fridges for everyone to share (separate beer fridge!)

    Really lovely, helpful staff and nice atmosphere. There’s no locks on the 8 bed dorm or lockers which is annoying although can leave valuables at reception

    Me and my friends loved our stay at this hostel- perfect waterfront location, where you could walk 5 mins and be on the main street. Lovely courtyard area with greenery, comfy hammocks, and a highlight being using the spa in the evening after a cold swim in the sea. Comfy beds and friendly staff and great kitchen and entertainment area. Only issues I had were that our room door was not lockable, no charging points by beds, and lack of railing on top bunk. Overall, I would reccomend this place :)
