At first glance it doesn't look like much but this hostel was a lot of fun. Everyone was incredibly friendly, including staff, and I met a ton of people without even trying.
The wifi is only in the lounge but it reaches the balconies and is good enough for Netflix and skype. They have daily activities and lots of freebies like surf boards and stand up paddle boarding. There's free breakfast (cereal and toast), and the occasional free BBQ.
There is a small kitchen on each level with an ok amount of refrigerator room. Kitchen was always clean, although not a ton of cutlery options.
Locations is awesome. Right next to bus stops, across the street from pizza, pasta, booze, and kebabs, and 10 minutes from the main beach.
The reason I left off a star is because of the rooms. My bunk was so incredibly squeaky that everyone in the room had a giggle fit because of how ridiculous it was. 3 lockers for 4 beds, and my locker didn't have a back so it was pointless. Bathroom was always wet because the water runs out of the shower.
It's not a trendy or clean hostel but it's loads of fun. I would recommend staying here especially if you're looking to meet people.
