From Thursday to Saturday the bars and clubs around are unbelievable loud (closing the window does not help at all) so bring good earplugs. A little warning about that in the hostel description would have been nice. Apart from that very good hostel.

I loved this hostel, its the best ive stayed in for a long time. The price was good, my dorm had its own private bathroom, the facilities perfect. It wasnt fancy but it was clean, the woman at the desk was so nice and showed me round when i arrived - she also had her rescue cat lounging in the sun outside. Laundry was free (amazing) and it was in a perfect location. Two minutes from the beach, bars and a rooftop bar next door.

Rob and Chris are amazing. Super friendly and funny. They create this amazing relaxed and cozy atmosphere. Nice bonus, they have bikes for hire for only 10 dollars per day. Location is perfect, however, bring your earplugs. You will need them as the hostel is directly above a karaoke bar.
