The location of this hostel was perfect. It was located directly across the street from the beach and about a 2 minute walk from a small super market. The vibe of the place was very chill and Gingi (the owner) was a nice guy (but one night he told my friends and I if we come home really late/loud we would be put out in the garden). I booked my stay with 7 of my friends 2-3 days before on a website and paid a deposit but upon arrival Gingi did not have my reservation so the deposit was a waste of money. He did accomadate us to the best of his abilities but he should work closer with the sites that book for him so this does not happen again. The rooms were quite small for 6 people and the kitchen was a disaster. The only time the kitchen was semi clean was for about an hour after the cleaning lady arrived. The fridgerator smells horrid and what ever food we put in there went bad. Gingi advertises air conditioning but none of the rooms has such. There are maybe 1 or 2 fans in the rooms which lead to a very hot and sticky nights rest. There are surf board rentals for those who enjoy so. Other than a few hiccups, this was a nice hostel. Once again the location is perfect.
