While booking this lovely hostel from Canada, I had mentioned to Cosimo, an employee of Brikette that it would be my daughter's birthday while there, and was there a place nearby where we could have a great dessert. He emailed back immediately that he would love to arrange a surprise birthday party. I thought that was so kind.
Once we arrived, we immediately melted into the place...our ocean view room was sparkling clean, towels provided and the beds were cosy. (I love the blankets lined with fleece...i must find one!) ...and Christianna's two little pooches were the sweetest little things!
I liked the fact that the hostel was high above the town...not just for views, but to have the joy of exploring all the many stairwells down to the sea. Plus being hikers, it was very close to a trailhead that we hiked. (I really recommend it!!)
Christianna, our host was a person I would love to call 'friend.' Very helpful and a GREAT cook...love your homemade chili oil!! And Cosimo who worked evenings really showed an gift for entertaining the guests.
To top it off Hannah and I went to a restaurant to celebrate her birthday, Christianna found out where we would be at and arranged a surprise dessert for us. So kind!
Also, an added convenience. The bus stops half a minutes walk to the hostel! Plus, you can catch the same bus which then takes you anywhere along the coastline.
I will definitely use this hostel as my nest the next time I return, as would my daughter.
I would say that this place is any age friendly and the price was really reasonable!
book the sea view with private bathrooms!
