I really enjoyed it here. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly, and the best part is the staff here. They're very lovely and helpful people who are willing to give you all the support and the best advice, both before (via email) and during your trip. The hostel is located a bit far from the center, in a quiet neighborhood....

We had a 4 bedroom and a double room. Double room was simple but nice. 4 Bedroom was ok, a little bit small for 4 persons and...

The location was great considering that i was taking some scuba diving lessons at pro dive...

Stayed in a mixed 3 bed dorm for 3 nights... very good experience. Clean rooms, bathrooms, laundry facilities. Great staff, and met lots of great people here.
