Awesome place, close to the beach, very nice environment, great prices, good vibe, lovely staff! What else do you need? Perfect for a dream holiday with the lads!

Its been a little while since I stayed in a hostel, but from what I can remember, this one is definitely one of the better ones. It is brand new and just across the street from Macumba beach. I stayed in a room with... More
