I chose to stay at this hostel after reading the good reviews & was happy with my choice. The best part hands-down is the proximity to the beach -- it's literally a minute from the doorstep to the sand. The hostel itself was a good value; the bathrooms are particularly run-down and could use some upgrading, however. The staff was... More

Stayed here for a week and it was a really nice place to stay. They pick you up from the bus stop and drop you back when you leave. The beach is across the road and its about a 15m walk to the city centre. The room was quite big and clean and the bathroom was ok not great for... More

For the price it's a good hostel. You're close to the beach, but a bit of a walk to stores and supermarkets. The staff was nice and friendly. Big movie collection and nice pool if you just want to chill. Lockers would have been nice though.
