    Super clean hostel with a great atmosphere. Nice, private showers/changing rooms and a kitchen with everything you need. Great value for what you get. There are quite a lot of steps to get from the main beach up to the hostel, so bear that in mind - but for us, it was some good physical activity after a day of eating and drinking!

    I was pleasantly surprised by this hostel. The kitchen was spotless and well stocked with utensils. Bathrooms also good with lots of showers. There is heaps of outdoors space including some shady bits (important in summer) and tables where you can work if you have to. Wifi is good and free. People were friendly but not overbearing. Over summer there are a lot of long-stayers working locally who tend to outnumber holiday makers. In terms of location - walkable from bus and shops.

    Really clean nice hostel. Good kitchen. Nice rooms, good clean bathrooms. Need a car as it’s a long walk from any shops cafes etc, but beautifully isolated away from any town a short walk down the hill to the beach. Busses do run past though. Not a great place to meet people if that’s what you want, more set up as a quiet hostel. Nice though, very chill.

    Mostly excellent, with friendly staff. However, the air conditioning does not extend to the bunk rooms. The recommended way of avoiding mosquito bites at night is to close the windows in the rooms, some of which are very small and get extremely stuffy with the windows shut all night, even with the fans provided. Why are there no mosquito nets on the windows? Also, smoking should not be permitted in the outdoor eating areas close to the kitchen - there is plenty of space at the further tables.

    Nice moderate size room. Bed good. Clean space. Had a heater. Bright and light. Big window. Kitchen clean, well stocked. Other travellers v friendly. Only 1 negative comment. The walls do not appear to have any soundproofing as we had only got to sleep to be woken up by people talking in the kitchen which went on for some time. I am not blaming the people, they weren't loud but still the sound travelled right into our room. This is not an easy fix.

    Very Good

    Location was fantastic as was the staff but it really feels like a hostel took over a school camp, it’s very basic and has no decor or coziness to make it have an inviting feel
