We were severely disappointed by this place as we had heard good things about it from the Lonely Planet and Coast to Coast. However, this place has been recently bought by someone new. The prices for the rooms and the breakfast (no homemade bread that was stated in the other guides!) are too expensive for what you get. The woman is uncommunicative and unreliable; she doesn't do what she says she will. The location is horrible and unsafe at night. Choose somewhere close to the safer beachfront where there are much better hostels (and restaurants/bars) for less.
