I stayed here as part of the stray bus experience and found it perfect. It is a really chilled out place to be and I was disappointed I was only there for a night which I feel speaks volumes for a hostel!
They offer a bus into the town, and to the beach an is a great place to chill out for a few days.
The rooms are good, too- typically 4 bed dorms an split into female and male however private rooms are also available!
The hostel is clean- bathrooms basic but just what you need and immaculate. Could do with a few more toilets but that's the only drawback I found with it!
Large kitchen with everything you need- great comfy tv room and good choice of films!
Staff were friendly and helpful, too :)
