Not the cleanest hostel in the world. But then, when you're on the beach, what place doesn't have sand on the floor?
Not a lot of public space, but the gang seems to congregate on the sidewalk out front and in a rear courtyard. Easy to meet fellow travelers. A bit of a party-crowd, but not overwhelming if you're not into it.
Very easy to meet people. Mostly a younger crowd. The odd freaked-out one passing through. But heh, that makes it interesting.
The location makes up for any negatives, in my view. I slept like a baby in the dorms. Had a blast meeting the other travelers. I'd definitely stay again.
