Liked: The staff were very helpful and kind

Disliked: The pillows are old and mouldy and the rooms smell of stale old socks. Where we were staying was just beside the kitchen and we were packed in like sardines. The breakfast was non-existant as well so don't expect anything

Relaxation/spa

01 January 2014

Liked: Nothing at all.

Disliked: 1-Their cat and dog walk everywhere in the rooms and in the kitchen. They spread their hair in the kitchen everywhere on the food, on the tables on the sink. They also piss and shit in the small back garden next to the kitchen where guests use that. 2-The hostel is very chaotic, unmanaged and unorganised. There are Spanish speaker guests who live here long time and they decide. Sometimes at 1 or 2 am they (3 or 4 of them) turn up music very loud and if you protest against it. the receptionist does nothing. The receptionist says to you instead of turning down the music: you can sleep tomorrow. These guests 3 or 4 of them drink and listen to music till late and they sleep day time and have nothing to do. 3-Breakfast is very basic, bread, jam, some old butter, coffee and hot water. The bread is white and very cheap bread. Don’t try to smell the bread. It stinks so badly. 4-they employed in the hostel the most stupid people who have no any language skill and they only speak their language. 5- Internet also disconnects all the time. You must tell them in this case. They then reset the modem. 6- This is the most dirty hostel I have ever seen in my life.

Liked: Just a decent hostel worth it's price.

Disliked: Nothing that I really disliked, but the dorm could have been cleaner.Breakfast was rather basic too, but fair enough for a cheap hostel. I can definitely recommend this hostel.

Liked: Hostel is in a nice location close to beach and not too far of a walk to center. The AC in our room worked and was definately needed. Good value for what you pay, but hostel needs some maintenance done as many facilities were not working while we were there.

Disliked: We stayed during Carnival, so the place was busy and many of the facilities were out of order. The bikes no longer work, door handles are missing, one shower did not work, clothes line broke, kitchen sink clogged, and several of the lockers were broken. The rooms are very cramped with little space for stuff and the kitchen gets crowded if more than 2 people are in it.
