Simply nice.
A nice hostel. it is quite literally a 30 second walk from the beach - if you walk slowly! A nice touch having breakfast included in the morning and having use of the kitchen throughout the day - we were able to keep costs down. There's a mini supermarket, 2 doors away. We had a room with private bathroom - the bathroom could do with some maintenance. But all in all, we enjoyed our stay here. It is a backpackers hostel, not a hotel - just bear that in mind.
