Exceptional 10.0
Very nice stay in perfect location
A lovely stay in a great location that is close to the town, beach and wharf. The receptionists were all friendly and hospitable too. The Wifi did not work properly was only the problem.

Comfy bed
Fairly clean hostel with really comfy mattresses. Pool was clean but I didn’t swim so I don’t know if it was warm or not. Would definitely recommend to other travelers.

Nice place. When it's cold I don't love that you have to go outside to get to the showers. But overall good stay, good price.
