Liked: This was a lovely hostel, not really like one I've stayed in before. Each unit is like a house with three or so rooms and max three beds in each. It really does feel like home with a proper kitchen and everything you could need. Definitely recommend, if you're tired of grotty hostel kitchens, unfriendly party animal staff, cramped bunk bed rooms and awkward walks to shared bathrooms in open corridors then stay here for some relief from being on the road!

Liked: Quiet, comfy dorm with only 3 beds, table side lamp and bedside table, all nice touches. Helpful staff, close to beach, free bikes useful for jumping on one to go to the shops or further along the esplanade (e.g. to the pier), good value laundry facilities. Would definitely recommend this hostel.

Disliked: Units shared by up to 7 people, so if someones in the bathroom you can have a long wait to go to the toilet - would have been good to be shown an alternative toilet to use. Also the kitchen only had a few utensils etc in it, I had to go to the next door unit and borrow one as there was only 4 forks!

Liked: The hostel is very nice for people who look for a calm place to stay. It is very clean and the rooms are equipped with 3 power outlets per person! The communal area which is shared by 3 rooms only is very new and has a big TV and a comfortable sofa. The kitchen is big and has enough place to sit. You have free WiFi which is very fast and you can hire decent bikes for free! We booked two tours with the very friendly receptionist Gary. It all worked very well. You get free breakfast with every tour booking. If you arrive by bus they pick you up for free. If you have to leave very early you can use the shuttle of the hostel next door!

Disliked: The kitchen could be eqipped with more cutlery and cups.

Liked: I really liked the atmosphere and the people in the hostel. Another good thing was, that even if you had booked a 4 bed dorm, you only get into a room with two other people, because the owner thinks its better.

Disliked: I think there could be some lockers in the rooms to save important stuff.
