Great staff (although we had a little problem with the reservation, but they had disponibilities anyway), great location, everything was very clean, the other guests were very nice. The only problem that I found was that the access to the rooms it's not possible during the day, but I guess that it's normal. In our personal situation we needed a place to leave our luggage (the lockers were small for our luggage).

Great hostel. Very pretty historic cluster of cottages make up the hostel. There is a great atmosphere here and the staff are very helpful. The location is perfect, a couple of blocks away from the beach and a five minute walk to downtown. I cannot find a fault with this hostel, I would 100% recommend.
