          Nice and quiet place to stay, friendly staff and really good food at "sea view" witch is the restaurant that 100m from the hostel. Simple but clean rooms. A short walk away from the ocean. We enjoyed our stay and recommend this place.

          This is not at all recommended. Booked this place 2 months in advance. When we went there, we did not have a room. All the rooms had been given. The location and restaurant are not at all good either. Not recommended!
