Liked: Great Hostel i would always recommend it. Nice and helpfull staff. Very clean and nice rooms ( Kitchen , Living Room, Sleeping RoomThe only thing i would recommend to improve is the Reception hours. When you arrive at 2.30 in the afternoon you cant check in before 4 pm and you have to wait... Specially after long travelling its not nice to wait again......I didnt know before that the reception is closed from 2pb untilll 4 pm. I couldnt prepare for it.

Liked: Clean and nice staff that gave me many useful tips on how to combat seasickness

Disliked: The hostel is a bit off so if you're travelling with Intercity Bus make sure you book the right stop, don't choose the city stop then you have to walk for a bit or take a taxi.
