    Great place, great location, staff were fantastic. Pool was a lot of fun, having the courtyard is great for socialising. Would definitely recommend. Organised night outs were well done, a lot of variety. Ben made the place a great place to be

    Stayed here for two nights and would go to this place again. Nice meeting area and good program. Surfboards are available for 15$/day but only four, So maybe you have to wake up early to get one. But it wasn’t a problem for me so...More

    There are some cabinets available, but I think you need your own lock. I didn't bother about it, just left my stuff on/around my bed and nobody bothered it.
