So, start with the good things.... Nice big kitchen, close to the beach, clean bathrooms, very nice staff that will help you with info, you can walk to everything, and cheep. But....
If you stay here don't expect much. This is Not a B&B B, it is a hostel. I think the shared rooms are probably the way to go because they are back behind the kitchen and off the road. You have to order brackfast and pay for it before 6 pm the day before. Do NOT get a private room. Thats what we did...They are right above the common area/kitchen were everyone party's all night. And the floors and walls are paper thin. A couple in the next room over had the whole shack shacking for about an hour. I got maybe 4 hours of sleep a night. The road that the place is on seems to be a local dirt bike/atv drag strip that really gets going around midnight. Vroom vroom! And the night guard was very friendly, he had loud chats with every local that walked by all night. And we heard it all because he was five feet below are window..... No towels and cobwebs in the room.
If your alone and need a fun place to stay this seems like a good option. Kinda reminded me of a college frat house. If your with your girlfriend looking for a cheaper place to stay that's quiet, you might do better to spend a couple extra bucks and go to another place.
