It's slightly north of the main part of town, about a km. Tim and Joan are energetic and devoted hosts. We took bikes everywhere. Such a great feature and benefit. Kitchen was adequate, sometimes people were sloppy but it's a hostel. Beach waking minute or 2 away. Beautiful flower gardens along driveway.

I just loved my stay at this hostel! It was so clean and bright, friendly and cozy! The facilities are great, it feels warm and safe. You also are just a few minutes walking from town on 1 side and the supermarket on the other side, just a few steps away from the beach which is always so so beautiful.... More
