Basic hostel that covers all your needs. The dorms are basic, with comfy beds, A/C and a bathroom. Water pressure of the shower was low and there’s no WiFi in the room - neither internet data, so if you want to use your phone you have to go outside. The ladies running the place were very kind and sweet to me, and kept everything very clean. The location is not bad, just 5’ walk from the diving centers and the beach.

I had the most amazing time here, I truly enjoyed my stay so much! I stayed here 7 days while I was getting my open water diving certification so it was super close to the beach and all the dive centers. They have a full kitchen, fridge, toaster, filtered water, and anything you might need which was so great. It was very clean and comfortable to sleep at night. The two ladies that run it are the sweetest people on earth, I adored them and having their company around. Would recommend this place!

I had a lovely time here! The staff is incredibly nice, funny and friendly and although there are no “common areas” per se i met quite a lot of people through the hostel, more than in other “social hostels”, it was clean, quiet it had lockers, and the shower had a curtain which you don’t always see. I would definitely repeat and recommend. Sweetest hostel of my whole trip.
