I like the location close to the beach, The dorm style rooms all have living areas which makes them feel wide and open. The complimentary shuttle bus is great!

Firstly, the staff was the friendliest I have ever met and they were helpful andkind even after our check-out. The location was perfekt and I warmly recomend the Lighthouse Tour that the hostel offers for everyone! The pool is clean and the rooms as well! The only thing is that you do not have a bathroom at your room but the kitchen and the bathroom spaces are good and clean. The atmosphere is Awsome! Loved my stay!
