Lovely location 2 minutes from nice beach. The hostel is old but well maintained. The beds are comfortable and the linen and towels spotless. Hot water, fan and a/c worked well. Ok English breakfast in nice atmosphere. The manager, Mr Sadiq is a charming host. Overall reasonable value for the money paid.
