This hostel is ok.
Before staying there I'd read reviews about the loud music and thought that wouldn't bother me... basically from about 2pm until 4am the bar next door has the LOUDEST soundsystem I've ever heard.. yet never any people there. It did annoy me!
Atmosphere when I was there was ok.. there never really seemed to be anyone around and one of the bar staff was really rude. Some people have a private lounge in their room and seemed to just be keeping to themselves in there.
Farly clean. Air con - but you have to basically beg to get the remote off reception for your room.
Kitchen is small with a tiny electric hot plate - not acutal oven or stove. Pool in knee deep - but you are so close to the beach anyway.
I wouldn't stay here again but wouldn't say it was the worst.
