  • Party hostel with dirty people. Unfriendly staff, you have to pay for EVERYTHING, even earplugs... They don't respect the opening hours for the pool, it closes super early and opens late. Don't trust the picture on the website, never could swim after sunset which in winter is at 5pm.. so basically you can swim from 9AM to 5 whereas the temperatures stay really hot until late at night
