I loved the breakfast, the pool area, the cleaning and the comfort of the bed.
The staff at the hotel were the most welcoming people in the world. There was a surf pre-film festival party that was on as soon as I arrived
A great modern hostel to stay in. Great staff that is really willing to help. Great bike service as I could use the bike for free! Good location, near the city center and the beach. Clean and nice room. Enough space to keep your personal belonings in a locker although you need to bring your own lock.
Cozy style, friendly staff, close to the wharf and downton, good breakfast
My room a little bit noisy, it was on highway side
Very clean, comfortable and everything (eg. Towels etc) was good quality. Great location. Easy parking.
On the pricey side for a shared dorm.
