The pros of the hostel is that it drawas a young surfer crowd. Lonely Planet gave it the highest reviews. We showed up to a dank poorly lit room, nothing like what we expected from our travel book. Apparently the writer for the book company was friends with the hostel owner and thus the great review. There were holes in the panaled ceiling and we could here insects or mice or something running around there was a cockroach in the bed and it was poorly lit so you felt like you were in a dungeon. There was air conditioning that worked well and the price was not that expensive. It is about a 7 min walk to the beach. They do arrange for trips to witch's rock which was a plus but overall the place was not a place I would liek to relax in at the end of the day. We canceled our room after paying and they were accomodating and gave us a full refund for which we were very grateful.
