Message from the host:

Hey, I will take a few moments of your life. Silly potatoes is my home. I stay here away from my family. I myself travel in off season and I understand what all is needed when a person is away from family &friends and travelling around the world. May it be work or making a long distance call to your loved ones which requires uninturrpted wi-fi connection or clean beds, nice vibes and good and friendly people around. We are not a party hostel but we do party a lot and go out for pub hopping and to various events such as ecstatic dances, trance and techno parties, open mics and more. If you think you can accept the place with a few flaws you're most welcome to be a part of the community, we would love to listen to your travel stories and life experiences. Our place has chilled and relaxed vibes. If you want to stay in a place where you can come back by the end of the day and feel at home or read books, relax and have good homely food and chilled beers, this is the place. Welcome!

    Booked for a night and ended up staying for 4. The owner and the staff are polite and welcoming. The common area/cafe is nicely lit and good to just laze around, listen to some music, read in the small library section, play cards, enjoy movie nights or have a jam session with your fellow travelers. The beds are clean and comfortable and the lockers are under the bed where you can fit medium sized bags. Coco and Charlie are occasionally available to hang out with if at all you like pets.

    Great hostel with large common area and comfortable beds. Fans in rooms. Staff are lovely. They have a bar and restaurant! The property is on the main road to the beach which means it’s quite noisy with traffic sometimes. 10 minutes walk to the beach.

    It’s a nice place but far away from everything, so not too many people there.
