  • Colourful buildings on the seafront. Hostel was fine but taken over by chattering Germans.

  • Had a lovely time here. Things were well organized. Information about the local area was great as well as being able to lock things in a safe closet when we went out for the day

  • The couple who run the hostel were awesome! They offered a lot of great advice on activities and were super friendly. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The kitchen was on the unclean side, with not a lot of resources to use. However with that said, I would definitely stay here again.
