          Fun backpackers but quite far from the beach. You have to travel far to get to the closest shops. Good value for money. Good place to meet other people on holiday. Staff pretty friendly and efficient.

          My friend and I stayed here when we were on a roadtrip. The staff were all friendly and approachable. It was definitely money well spent. We order a burger from their kitchen for dinner and it must have been one of the best burgers ever!!!

          This hostel is just great, the location is really amazing and the host is very friendly and open to provide you with all the information you'd need. I stayed in a private room and it was nice and well furnished. Recommended!
