The hostel itself is in a nice location, right by the beach, right in front of the bus stop and all the other bars...the room is nice and spacious...but after this it just gets lets down by the common room which is very small for the amount of people there and always full, the kitchen is small...but the worst thing is the service at reception...Every time I come to this area there is a massive line where there is only one receptionist working and one travel agent who is doing nothing and doesn't come over to help clear the line. And if you ask for you bag from the locker/storage room......you may get the look of death...
Its a shame about this place, being in such an amazing place but let down by the service...it may seem like a small thing but it makes all the difference.
