Das Hostel liegt direkt am Wasser, was sehr nett ist. Einchecken muss man ca. 2 km entfernt in einem Lokal. Es wäre nett gewesen, wenn man dies vorher erfahren hätte und nicht erst bei Ankunft am Hostel. Großer Küchenbereich und ausreichend Bäder, die auch in einem guten Zustand sind.

The hostel is very nice (good position, shared space and room clean). The only problem is that there is not sign in the road to go to the was a bit complicated to find it.
