Liked: The hostel is in a great spot - with easy access to the beach and waterfront. The staff are amazingly helpful and friendly - they accommodated all our needs and answered any questions we had about the area. The building is secure with a permanantly locked front door and security cameras. The pillows are the most comfortable we have had all year. The sheets and bathrooms are very clean.

Disliked: No laundry facilities and the closest one is a taxi ride away.

Liked: Very helpful staff, I arrived and was tired and there was a problem with my booking, so instead of making me wait, I was upgraded into a 4 person dorm instantly so I could put my stuff down and have a shower. Very friendly atmosphere with a nice group feel, events are organised every night for anyone that wants to join. The location is perfect, right on the beach, could not be better if they tried.

Disliked: Nothing and it is rare for me to write a review as 100%, make sure you visit here!
