We had an unpleasant stay at this hostel. The bedsheets were clearly unchanged and we had to ask for clean ones. Two plug sockets did not allow plugs to be put in them - there was clearly something stuck in them - this is a safety issue. The window handle which was broken and the window did not shut properly. There were holes in the wall and ceiling. The room itself smelt damp.

This hostel is more like a 4* hotel than a hostel, it is so clean, the rooms are very nice, the kitchen is well set out. There are plenty of showers to go round for every one so you are not waiting for showers like some places. The owners are lovely people and they can't do enough for you , you will love staying there. You mark my words. All the best steve. 👍👍👍👍👍

Das Haus ist nett und günstig gelegen. Man könnte mehr daraus machen, wenn sich jemand mehr darum kümmern würde. Leider war das bei unserem Aufenthalt nicht der Fall. Vor allem die Küche war sehr vernachlässigt und unsauber, weil niemand wie in anderen Hostels dort nach dem Rechten gesehen hat. Ausser beim Ein- und Auschecken hatten wir auch keinen Kontakt zur Betreiberin der Hostel, die im Nachbarhaus ein B&B betreibt, das besser gepflegt wirkte.

As I was the only guest at Beach Haven, I stayed in the B & B instead of the hostel. My above ratings are for the B & B

C'est un lieu de passage, avec un confort sommaire, tout fonctionne mais n'est jamais très pratique, en rapport avec le prix. Bien situé, on va "en ville" à pied ...
