This is my second time here in three weeks. The staffare great, the beds are comfy, the kitchen is really well equiped. There are so many different places to relax in peace or meet new people. I would definitely recommend.

Seagulls is a mix of guesthouse and backpacker with a nice atmosphere. The kitchen is one of the cleanest we've seen. The room was o.k., slightly small with almost no place to store your luggage. Free laundry!

I loved the colour coordinated and good quality furnishings, which is not common in the budget accommodations. It was also beautifully clean and in a quiet area. Perfect for a restful stay. The outside deck could be improved, but otherwise, the rooms, bathrooms and common areas were perfect.

We stayed 4 nights at the Seagulls Guesthouse. It is truly a guesthouse, somewhere in between a budget hotel and a hostel. Manager was friendly and helpful during check in, despite being very busy with all the people checking in and out of the place. Each room is private, with its own sink (amazing when you don't have to leave...

Rooms were perfectly comfy for private dorms. Shared areas such as sitting room kitchen were amply stocked with utensils, cutlery etc. There was even a did collection. However, the 2 BBQS were unusable dirty and there was a very OAP vibe here. We were completely ignored by other lodgers, which I guess made it quiet and relaxing. The wifi was...
