Gute Atmosphäre und netter Charme, etwas abgewohnt, zwei von drei Toiletten defekt, eine wurde wieder in Stand gesetzt. Die Selbstversorgerküche war immer in einem sauberen Zustand. Würde wieder hinfahren.

Enjoyed my stay here. Could you please add a prominent sign, perhaps on the back of bedroom doors, indicating what to do with bedlinen upon departure?

Good location with great views over the bay, if walking with heavy bags it's a very steep hill up but only 5mins. Very nice cooked breakfast. Room lacked powered outlets, there were two sockets for six beds and for some reason lots of old style AC sockets, I was in the room alone so this was no problem but if it was full there might have been.

Although we had a very nice time and the location is truly great (close by sandy white beaches, shops, railway station etc.) the cleanliness of the entire hostel left a lot to wish for and partly any water in the showers and toilets.
