    Really cool hostel, charming rooms and all the facilities you need. Kitchen was well equipped, enough parking spaces, fast wifi. The beach is just a three minute walk away. This place got a big surfer vibe.

    Everybody was very friendly and helpful. The only hostel where we did not ever lock our doubleroom once and we never felt unsafe. Close to the beach 5 to 10 min walk and next door the best coffee you can find!
