“A bit run down”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

This hostel is in a good spot and has large spacious common rooms, but desperately needs refurbishing. The bed was uncomfortable --soft and sagging -- and the same could be said for the rest of the place. In addition, there were more than the average number of roaches in the bathrooms and kitchen.

The location of this hostel is excellent, with high cliffs in the back and the ocean in front. It wouldn't take exceptional effort to bring it back to shape. Also, a ladder to get in and out of the pool would help.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2011

We had a double room with a shared bathroom. The room was clean and spacious. There were 2 shared bathrooms and both were nice and clean. The property is quiet and the balcony that runs across the front of the 2 storey house has fantastic views of the ocean in the distance. The owners are very friendly and helpful. There is a full kitchen for use. We enjoyed our overnight stay as we were travelling through. There is a pool but we did not use it.
