    This place was awesome!!! I loved the location, and there is so much to do in the area. The only issue is the bar next door has live and loud music late into the night, but a pair of headphones and calming music helps that go away. I really enjoyed staying here.

    The location is amazing. Right by the beach. The staff is helpful and friendly. If you have a hard time sleeping with loud music I wouldn’t recommend it, there is a bar below opened until 2 am that blasts music all night. It wasn’t a problem for me, I sleep through anything! There’s lots of good places to eat and hang out near by. & if you’re alone and looking for some people to hang with, there are a lot of people traveling alone so this is a great way to meet people!

    Needs more bathrooms on the first floor, but they appeared to be renovating so hopefully that’s in the plans. Possibly the comfiest hostel bed I’ve ever slept on. Good mattress and a proper pillow. Beautiful location with head of food options nearby. Would stay again.

    Room is basic, hesitant to use bathroom shower or toilets - not very well tended to. Were not received well in the morning we arrived - felt dismissed, as if our presence was in someway imposing. Bar downstairs is so loud that band playing might as well have been in our room, the whole place shook with sound vibrations! It's a cramped space and the 'communal areas'so tiny they're hardly worth mentioning. Drinking by all guests even though waiver forbids alcohol
