Great location, right on the beach front, next to a surf school. Easy walking distance to both restaurants and bars on the beach and in town.
Really pleasant, friendly and helpful staff.
Rooms are very basic, a room with beds, shelves, a bathroom with toilet, sink and shower but more than sufficient for what we needed. There's a big kitchen, with fridges, freezer, cooking job and utensils which is available for all residents to use. There's also outside tables which are nicely placed in the shade and was perfect for group breakfast and meals. There's also a number of hammocks, which are delightful to chill out in.
The other residents staying here were really friendly and had come back year after year (for the last 7!).
The rooms were $40 for a single room and $50 for a double, which I did think was a little overpriced, especially as there wasn't any air con in our room, however saying this I wouldn't hesitate to go back.
