          Spent a night at this hostel in October and if I had spent a night during the summertime perhaps my review would be more favorable due to the ocean view. However, I hardly slept as the bed I was in was really soft and worn...More

          We had a private room in what I would call a granny annex/house. We had it all to ourselves. The hostel had great facilities, great staff and a lovely view. It is a quiet hostel but great value for money.
