The double rooms are small, except for one. The bathrooms don't have hot water, neither soap. There is no room service and they could use more hangers in the room, because the weather is usually damp and clothes take long to dry. The shared kitchen is well-equipped, but there is no food provided by the hostel, and the refrigerator is tiny. The kitchen closes at 9p.m, and that means you have to finish up everything before that time.
The good things are the amazing high-deck with hammocks to chill and the bar/reception area, except for when the music is too loud (music starts at 8a.m.). You can rent bikes at the hostel for 5 dollars per day. The location is good, because it's not in the middle of the town, it's by the sea, a more pleasant area. And the cabs to town are really cheap (0.60 dollars per person), and you can wal to town in 15 minutes.
