Camped here for a couple of nights. Great place to meet other travellers and the staff are very nice and accommodating. Just don't pitch tent too close to the bar as can et quite noisy early in the morning around breakfast time, also closer to the trees block some of the morning Sun as it can hit very quickly!

I recently stayed here in one of their private rooms over looking the sea.The private rooms are separate from the hostel which is nice as they are peaceful.
