A great hostel located near sea side. Athif was a great host and ensured that the check-in process was smooth. The hostel had all the amenities: common space, kitchen, table tennis, board games, music, yoga area. The only drawback was the cleanliness. I saw a rat running in the kitchen which freaked me out. Otherwise, it's a great place for backpackers.
