Liked: Apart from the general atmosphere and facillities that were excellent, it was Kike and the other staff that made this hostel one of the best I've stayed at. They were very welcoming, multi-lingual, friendly and helpful, making me feel at home as soon as I stepped in. It is close to the free beach and heaps of bars and clubs. People there seemed to find the balance between being there to both relax and party, and the pub crawl with the sister hostel is good value, great fun, and opportunity to make friends.

Disliked: I honestly can't think of anything I didn't enjoy about this hostel.

Liked: It was absolutely the warmest surprise to arrive to this hostel during my trip. The staff welcomed me with smiles and right away I got the help I needed. The benefits that come along are stunning, with the price you can stay it is impossible to find half of them elsewhere. I saved a lot of money cooking in the communal kitchen and also with the hostel's own Happy Hour. Close to the town and just a short bus ride away from the clubbing.

Disliked: I thought that during my stay the hostel would be crammed but I was mostly alone. The beach of course is crammed with families on holidays so nothing much to expect from there.

Liked: The hostel's description was spot on, the staff were helpful and it's situated on a quiet street so you can have a rest if needed (of course that depends on the people you're sharing the room with). The location is great and if you don't want to walk you can rent a bike for 2€. The kitchen was top notch (in hostel standards) and you can store your food in a fridge. Overall the hostel is pretty clean. The rooms had lockers, if you don't have a lock you can buy one from the reception.

Disliked: The 8 bed dorm did get a bit crowded even though there were only 2-4 other guys staying per night while my stay.

Liked: Very friendly, interesting people, kitchen and fridge, free breakfast, free internet.

Disliked: Loud piped music. Couldn't concentrate to read, listen to my own iPod or radio, or hear conversation properly. Heard same reggae CD 3 TIMES! Not so bad when radio piped in evening - more of a mixture. Other dorm-mates had their stuff everywhere, making it a total mess. TV room advertised, but no TV stations could be shown, as there is no antenna.

Liked: Most things are fine & working, but..

Disliked: Shower in the room I was staying cannot be considered as user friendly: (old- fashined, situated in between of the sink and the toilet seat). Another real improvement could be better milk for breakfast. The one that was constantly provided in a glass dish was unpleasant (using a mild expression) and the type / producer was not identifiable.

Liked: 24 hour access, good location near facilities in the town.

Disliked: slept very poorly, because of bites from bedbugs and flying insects Breakfast poor. Hostel seemed more interested in saving money than satisfying guests. For example, could offer drinks from proper espresso machine, rather than getting in second low quality machine just for breakfast.
