    The hostel is in a great location on Mylopatas beach, very friendly staff and excellent value for money. It's great if you're looking for a quiet stay as it's away from the nightlife. As a solo traveller it may be hard to meet other travellers.

    Everyone is really friendly! We could even check out one day before we had booked. The location is perfect. A mini market with the cheapest prices right next to it! Unfortunately only two plucks worked in a 4beddorm and the room didn't get cleaned while our stay.

    Ok place to stay. Nice pool and a good location (close to the beach and bus stop which takes you into the city). Facilities were lacking however. No kitchen/utensils/crockery. Wifi did not reach the rooms at all. We were not allowed to eat our own food in common area near the pool which was annoying. Mattress was horrible, could feel springs in my back. Air con worked really well.
