  • The hostel was very unclean. I prefered to shower at the beach showers than at the hostels'. The staff was average, they had us waiting forever so we could check in. They say the breakfast is included, but it's only cereals, which would be alright if they didn't make you PAY for the milk!! Stayed in a 12 beds room, with no air con, so we had to sleep with the one patio door opened, which resulted in party noise and lights the whole night. Bad experience.

  • We stayed here because we thought it has great reviews - when we got here, turns out it is a terrible hostel and they were giving away free internet in exchange for good reviews! Dirty showers, with puddles in the middle of the bathroom. There was noise all night. The room has been overbooked - so 2 people shared a bed, which broke half way through the night. The receptionist came in a yelled at them in the morning - waking the whole room up. Overall bad vibes & badly organised.
