Its a decent & economical place to sat for couple of nights. Very conveniently located. It was clean. We had a room with private bath. Only downside was the mattress which was way to soft & not comfortable.

Their facilities are in three buildings...this review is of the building on the water that contains all/most of the rooms with private bathrooms. The building is either new or recently remodeled, as all appears new. It is highly functional, nice location (near the two restaurants, the waterfront, the supermarket, the gas station, etc), laid out well, and has a nice... More

This place was a simple find - easy to locate the office and then drove to the separate complex near the water and harbor. We weren’t in the hostel - our room had an en suite bathroom, linen & towels and was perfect for our needs. We checked in late, around 8:00pm and followed the check out procedures in the... More

We spent one night at this very clean hostel. There is a couple building, the main red one and across the street a green one, which is the one we are in. We are provided blankets but have to provide our own sheets, unless you pay extra. The private room is small, big enough room for our luggage, bed is... More

The dorm was clean and spacious (we were actually given a 5-bed for the price of a 4-bed, although the beds were really uncomfortable. The kitchen was nice but a little small considering the number of people it was catering. In the main house there must have been 20+ people plus whoever was staying in the other properties, but the... More

My photo tour was over the New Year and this hostel is normally closed at that time. Our trip leader somehow wrangled a deal with the proprietors, they left us the keys and we spent the night here. I haven't often stayed in hostels but this was clean and neat. We loved, loved, loved that we had the place all... More

In a town with only a couple of places to stay, I'm So glad we picked this one. The views from the new build by the sea are fantastic and it's crisp, clean and modern. The shared facilities are great, everything you might need for a comfortable stay and rooms are lovely (ours was a double with a private bathroom).... More

We spent two nights staying in the new building by the sea. I will be the first to admit that I haven't stayed in many youth hostels so I can't really make comparisons, but I found the bed very comfortable, the manager helpful at check in, the shower good and hot and the view from the bedroom window exceptional!
