“Not for the over 30's”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2011

First of all this is budget accommodation so I really wasn't expecting too much. What I did expect however was something that didn't resemble a Bail Hostel. I was on a Stag weekend so as a bunch of lads we didn't ask for too much. We had a 6 bedroom dorm which consisted of 3 bunk beds crammed into a room that would be deemed too small if I had been in prison. There was a sink and a tiny shower in the room. There was a communal toilet which we shared with 12 other rooms...Grim! I think the real problem was tha fact that the bar was open until 4 am and the owner relished the opportunity to demonstrate the dynamic power and range of his Bose sound system to the surrounding neighbourhood. Add to that the inconsiderate other guests who loved to scream and shout in Pseudo estuary accents until 5 am making sleep an impossibilty. As I said I'd set the bar low and it was a good job I did. One to avoid!

4 of us stayed the weekend just gone, and it was an absolutely amazing weekend. The hostel itself is immaculate, the bar area is awesome with some really interesting art work (behind the bar). The room was comfy as were the beds and a hot shower in a hostel is a first for me.
the owner Gerry is a legend to, made us feel really welcome and is a giggle aswell. the location is perfect for clubs bars and the beach but far enough away not to hear them. if your planning a party break then this place is the dogs gonads. Definitely going back!!!
