This hostel is in a old warehouse so the space is really big, yes, there is not a lot of natural light in the common room but it is very colorful decorated and at least the double room we stayed in had a very big window so this is not a problem in the rooms. Location is good because it is very near to the Marine World and the beach. We had a nice time here, thank you very much.
