Good location and good people operating the hostel. Has a nice common area that's outside but still undercover. Nice little bar as well where they put on good drink specials every night. Would stay here again.

This is a very friendly, lively , slightly hippyish hostel with a lot of atmosphere and a lot of activity going on. At its heart is a small pool and bar. The room was clean and pretty good value for the price. Has all the...More
