This was my first hostel experience and to be honest i could not wait to leave. Travelled with friends, i shared a private room with one of them, the others ended up dragging their mattress into our private room because there room was freezing because the door to the balcony had a gaping hole and one of the mattresses were used to prop the door close.
The private room was thankfully lockable but i did not feel confortable leaving belongings there, It was right next to the bathroom which meant that anytime anyone went to the bathroom we were woken up. The walls had what looked like claw marks etched in there, the bathrooms were 'apparently" cleaned twice daily but we did not feel comfortable using them and the sinks were not cleaned during our stay. The thread bare linen wasn't the cleanest, the pillow case i used had suspicious white stains all over it.
The location was not ideal, a tad too far from the beach and we did not feel safe walking around after dark. As for the atmosphere, there is definately an internation feel to it but it was not the most social hostel (mainly because we did not wish to leave our room).
The only advantage of this place was the free wifi which we used to book other accomodation.
