We arrived at this beach front backing hostel following a 17 hour flight and were exhausted.
Found the staff to be precise and to the point but not especially welcoming or friendly. Our room was pretty good for a hostel having a mini fridge and en-suite.
Excellent location being 50 metres from the sea-wonderful walking and views to be had.
A real negative was the extremely poor sleep quality whilst staying at this hostel. Notices were placed all over the hostel requesting that guests were respectful of others and quiet after 10pm-unfortunately this was not the case. Every night was like a Saturday night with guests drinking/shouting/fighting into the wee hours.
We are all for partying and enjoying life, but it is a basic requirement of human functioning to have adequate sleep!!!-and not 2-3 hours per night! If you are young and/or a party animal then this place is ideal for you. However, if you do like to sleep for more than a few hours, I suggest that you look elsewhere-you may end up grouchy!
