The places is really nice and super close to town. The bedrooms are clean and there are plenty of bathrooms. The kitchen is pretty small and you need to bring your own knifes and forks, but otherwise there is everything there. Nice hostel!

Very nice and clean rooms! Friendly staff and great location close to beach, shops and bus stop. You can hire surfboards for 15/day and also get 30min free wifi. Only downside is that kitchen is quite small and dirty.

Hands down one of the worst accommodations. The rooms are crawling and the bathrooms stink. The kitchen is a nightmare and the fridge smells dead. TERRIBLE staff and facilities hardly work. No rules followed either.
