The discount at Longboards was the only thing keeping us from checking out early and finding somewhere else to stay. The man at the front desk was not welcoming, lots of ants in our room, and the bathroom area smelled like sewage most of the time. If you’re on a tight budget, go for it. Otherwise I wouldn’t recommend this hostel to anybody.

Bedbugs. At first I thought about giving them a break but a friend told me she stayed there 2 weeks ago and had bed bugs as well. Good place for the price but definitely should respect the guest a bit more by keeping the place clean.

Georgette was great to work with; so hospitable, helpful, knowledgeable, accommodating, and sweet. Once I discovered the shortcut to the beach (around the corner and down the alley) I went more frequently, And the smoothie/breakfast shop out front?! SO GOOD! I nearly cried when it was time to leave! Getting a discount at Longboard's was great too, especially when we found out, that's the happening spot!
