I have stayed in a lot of hostels around the world & this unfortunately is not the best as previous reviews suggest. Although the location is very good - near main square with cafes, restaurants and beach close by, the facilities were poor.
The kitchen was generally very dirty. One morning we couldn't even get in the kitchen as there was rubbish including food waste and chicken bones as well as a well fed mouse on the floor! Dishes piled up in the sink (you get the idea!). The bedrooms were damp (not just smell but bedsheets were damp to the touch).
However, the shower was hot and the toilet was clean (with plenty of toilet roll!).
For around £7 a night it's difficult to rate this place as its so cheap. We did however, have to eat out 3 times a day which increases costs! I would say its fine for a couple of days, but not for a long period. I cant say I'd stay here again.
Simo the hostel manager is very relaxed & full of useful info. His English is excellent and his day surf trip we'd recommend!
