Je n'ai pas apprécié le séjour dans cet hostel malgré la jolie vue sur la mer et l'amabilité du personnel. La chambre en dortoir était très petite pour 4, le lit n'était pas très confortable et j'ai trouvé les sanitaires très sales.

Pros: Enjoyed my stay due to its central location. Its near the beach and close to the bus stop. The hostel had good deals on tours. Had a good bar and kitchen open till late night. The view from the patio is beautiful. It has a good library and hammock. Young crowd and seemed safe. Its reasonably priced. I will recommend this place Cons: Breakfast was very average.
