It was okay, pretty clean but small 4 bedroom dorm. Not much atmosphere and not the most welcoming place/staff I found. But was there during off season.

The dorm is really nice but I do think the price is a bit steep for the size of the dorm & the fact that the showers are on the other side of the property. Also the kitchen is completely off bounds to guests with all the cupboards & fridge locked and staff only signs on everything which is weird the staff barely even use it.

Beautiful hostel close to the main beach and some cool cafes. The bigger dorm faces the ocean which is stunning.
