Was surprised this place has such great reviews, but think it must be for the owner/managers not for hostel itself. The owners were lovely however were not aware of our booking made 5 days earlier, so decided to put us in an apartment 500m down the road. Apartment was dirty, we had to clean the mould out of the fridge to use it. There was no wifi there, we had to return to the hostel to use it, but it didn't work after the first day anyway. There was no atmosphere in the common room- no one hanging out to meet and chat with.
I knew the hostel was out of the old town and was happy to stay there knowing this if it was as wonderful as the reviews described, which it was not. Its a 20-30 min bus trip to the old town (not 10!!) And it's a 15 minute walk to the beach and shops so not close to anything!
People should rate this place based on the actual facilities not on how nice the family are!!
