Great location close to the beach, only stayed for 1 night so can’t confirm social aspect but very clean and efficient hostel. We checked in late so the staff provided a code and left our bedding and key out on arrival.

Generally pretty dirty. Room was pretty gross (4 bed mixed dorm) it smelt disgusting and didn’t look like it’d been cleaned in a while, also sofas were all torn to pieces and dirty. Tried to move rooms but staff wasn’t very helpful. Generally a very strange vibe. Guy in our room had a chair in there and was blasting YouTube videos with no headphones all day and evening.

It's a pretty decent place, the rooms are ok and the kitchen is good. Not much atmosphere, but a good place to relax
