It's a good option for a budget travelers. The room and all public area are really clean and the owner are very friendly and helpful. Restaurants, Pubs, supermarkets and beaches are all walking minutes.

Sean's property is a great place to stay. There were 27 of us from our cricket club and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. He was a great host, who never got in way and left us to ourselves. 27 blokes could have been seen as problem but we are a cricket club, not a football club. As a result... More

I thank you for your review.

“Rooms range from large dorms, to smaller ones and private rooms. Pick which you want for your budget. If you go as a large group perhaps consider booking out a whole dorm and filing it with your group. Its great fun and a really cheap way to save”
