We really liked this hostel. The staff is kind and will always very helpful. The hostel is nearby the beach, supermarkets and the big street. You can do it al by walk. You get a free towel, which was also nice. I would definitely recommend it! :)

Super nice hostel, located at 50m from the beach. There's a nice swimming pool, clean common kitchen and tidy working area for people who work remotely. Stunning rooftop terrace for nice sunsets. Rooms are tidy but comfortable, everything is cleanded every day. Had a great stay over there, I would recommend to everyone.

The hostel is super nice! I was in a 4 Dorm Room with a balcony and a private bath. Everything was very clean and the staff is really nice and friendly too. The best thing: it is directly at the beach! 😍
