People were fantastic. Amenities were very good. Meals were very good, especially evening preparations. Bar was great. Lighting in lounge area needs improving. Only real problem were VERY shallow area for sitting room in men's toilets. Hall wider than needed. Some of this space could be converted to allow more room in stalls.

One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Very basic room, but that's all you need when you have that view! Town is awesome. Hostel has it;s own 'beach' (rocks to jump from), or they give you a free voucher for the local beach club which is awesome. Very friendly staff that go above and beyond. Nightly dinner where everyone eats together and is super easy to make friends, and comes with a free glass of wine. Exceptional place

I thought it was very generous to provide free food due to the change of location. The girl who served me made an individual fresh pizza even though I had arrived late in the evening!
