I stayed with a friend in this hostel for two weeks and had a lovely time. The place was clean and welcoming, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere. It is very well located as well so you can be at the supermarket, the beach or in a nice pub in 5 minutes!

I stayed here for 4 nights, really lovely, relaxed atmosphere, staff were all very chatty. No cliques that you can get in some hostels. Only issue I had was that the fridge didn't seem to work, food was not cold that was kept in there - perhaps a new fridge is needed 😃

I stayed here with my friend for ten weeks. The hostel is very nice and clean and the staff are friendly and willing to help. The hostel is placed conveniently and it is only a small walk to the beach.Overall we've had a great stay!
