What travellers think
The hostel has the amenities and atmosphere of a university residence. It was clean, had air conditioning and beds were comfortable. Wifi was slow but would reach our room most times. We don't mind walking so we were ok to walk the 2.5 km to the beach (25 min) and the 45-60 min to the city centre. Otherwise, a bus and a tram pass right in front. The closest grocery store is 20 min away walking. The kitchen or room don't have a fridge, but the kitchen has the basics to cook.
