We stayed here for two nights in a shared dorm room. The building is definitely ordered but well presented and very clean. Ammenities are good and wifi work very well in our room. Very central location and staff were helpful and friendly. Thank you!

Excellent location for shops, beaches, bars and restaurants and for getting picked up for a wine tour. Good kitchen and common area and decent showers. Nice mix of travellers and good place for chatting.
