DO NOT BOOK A ROOM ON THE BACK OF THE HOSTEL AT ANY COST!!!!
I have just come back from a 10day solo tour of the island staying at 6 different places and this place was by far the worst!! The reason i say "chic & shabby" is if you have a room on the front with the nice views of the sea etc then you`re in the "chic" part, but if you stay on the back like i did then this is just pure "SHABBY"!! I stayed in room 124 which measured approx 8ft x 14ft and you could stand in the middle of the room and touch all 4 walls - i now know how ppl feel when they say they feel claustrophobic. My view from my window was of the dusty communial carpark for anyones use and on from that scrub-land. On a few occasions when i did look out my window there were ppl in broad daylight urinating up the carpark wall (as in pic behind burgandy car). Then at night time you had to contend with the busy road that was DIRECTLY under your window which seemed to be a meeting point for the locals who`d turn up at ALL hours, park their cars up with their car music blarring out and talking/shouting amongst themselves, plus scooters and every other form of transport using the road, so if you wanted a early night like i did FORGET IT!!! I was mean`t to stay here for 2 nights but checked out after the first and proceeded to my next destination. Also i asked for a menu at lunchtime thinking i`d be able to order a sandwich or suchlike but everything on the menu started at 9euro`s just for a soup then it all went up to 13+ euro`s, so no chance of a cheap bite to eat. The rooms were dirty and cob-webs everywhere (as in pic) and as the night progressed into morning the bedroom doors were getting slammed louder as there was just one long corridoor the entire length of the hostel so you`d hear every door close/slam. As for breakfast - it was a sdire as the hostel, vending machine tea/coffee - YUK!! I must stress also that in my opinion this isn`t a place for solo travellers as everything seems geared towards couples all trying to look/act suave. I had high expectations when i booked this place based on the "hype" but my heart sunk as soon as i opened the room door :/
This could be a really nice place if the rooms had a makeover and it wern`t so pretencious.
