We LOVE hostel Nicola. After five months of travel we can confidently say this was our favourite hostel. Federico is an excellent host who creates such a homie vibe. We felt comfortable and safe here, enough that we came back to stay two more times. The rooms are clean and spacious and there's enough washrooms that were also clean. Free breakfast you make yourself was a win for us and the pool was so lovely when you needed a break from the sun. It's a bit from true beach but that never impacted us, I would

False advertising - breakfast is DIY, ran out of supplies and coffee on multiple occasions. Kitchen feels cluttered and unkept. Bedrooms and the rest of the hostel are clean, pool is awesome! Not sure who the host is/was, didn’t seem to be any staff at this hostel.

This property is exactly what you would expect in terms of facilities for the price you pay. In that sense it has value for money. It's not the most comfortable hostel I've stayed in, however, where it excels is the extraordinary owner. Staying here you will likely meet some interesting people, you'll save some money, and you'll be treated with a kind friendliness that only Hostel Nicoa and few other hostels provide.
