We made Hostel Hansi our base for the better part of a week and enjoyed it very much. It's extremely clean and you're provided with a new towel every day. Our room had a table by a big window that we could open during the day to let in the sea breezes and was great so that my husband could open his laptop and do his work there. We had a TV and a blazing fast fan which kept us cool at night. The room was full of shelves and hooks and hangers so lots of place to put our things.
The kitchen is exceptionally clean and the fridge is well organized with ample room. We found the owner to be really nice.
They do have a lot of rules (must pay by the day, not at the end. No doing your own laundry. No guests. No cooking for guests) but we found we had no problem with that.
This isn't a bar party hostel, which is another reason we loved it. It located right in town, though, so over the weekend the noise from the bars was a little loud. But it wasn't anything that our powerful whurring fan couldn't mask.
The is a hotel being built next door, so the sounds of hammering go on during the weekdays. But you should be at the beach, not in your hotel, so its okay! But if this concerns you get a room on the East side.
