I stayed here for one night. It's a well-located hostel, two or three blocks from downtown. Quiet place to stay with friends or family. It has shared toilets, but these are clean all the time. It includes delicious breakfast and good environment. Around 20 dollars a night. Rooms are pretty clean as well!

Cute little hostel, nicely located: - 5mins from bus station - 10 mins from plaza, Japanese garden, market and supermarket. - 30/40 mins from beach Nice size rooms, clean and well kept shower rooms (temperamental water though). Seriously good breakfast of eggs any way you like. Would recommend.

The hostel is one of the cleanest we have stayed at. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. A family run place and a highly recommended place to stay. The breakfast was delicious and we were offered coffee on arrival. The staff were constantly cleaning the place. It's near to the centre and bus station .

We ended up staying here because the hostel we'd wanted to stay at was booked up and this one was on the same street. The family that run this hostel are lovely, so friendly and because it has family run it has a really homely feel to it. The rooms, communal areas and bathrooms were very clean but the kitchen...
