This hostel promotes itself heavily on the fact that it is by the beach. It is, and it also has a swimming pool. These are both great, unless you stay there when its raining heavily. If both there things are taken out of it, all you have is one big common room with music. There is no TV and you have to pay to use the internet (this includes wi-fi). Its pretty expensive, about $5 an hour. You can go down to Backpackers world and get a free half hour of internet everyday.
The bathrooms were dirty. The bathroom near to me had one toilet and one shower. There was a bath but the lock didn't work on tthe door.
The people I shared a hostel with got wasted and brought back a group of people into the room. Normally I wouldn't have minded but had to get up super early to catch a bus.
This is pretty lousy hostel in my opinion, overpriced not worth the money.
