Stayed here for a week with 6 of my friends, we had the best week ever, yes its like 2mins from center of town, but your talking of like a 2 min walk you lazy S.O.B's. The staff were nice, they let us drink in the room's frowned upon, but once you keep it to normality and not go nuts on the partying, the will turn blind eye, we were at the beach every day, they gave us surf boards, body boarders, snorkeling gear all for free, we even broke a door and nothing was said, cause one of the lads was made for the ride in the shower with some chick from england, I know traitor and irishman with an english woman. if you want a proper hostel and not the commercial hostel like nomads, this is the place to stay.
