  • This was by far the best place we have stayed in yet. We booked a double room with a shared bathroom, but when we came to check in, they gave us a double room with our own bathroom for the same price, they said since it was low season and no one was using it anyway :) It was clean, modern and inviting, the food was lovely, and the staff were very helpful. It really shows that the owner has put her heart into this place. Also, they had a really friendly pets. Would without a doubt come back :)

  • Very nice hostel with a chilled out atmosphere! The dorms aer nice, a bit small maybe. The bathrooms are clean, you can put your stuff into the safe and they'll book tours for you, BUT the transport there is ridiculously expensive!!! So you'd rather find some people to come with you or rent a car instead!! It's also quite a hike to the beach, it's alright cause it's down the hill...up you might wanna take a taxi )
