I stayed here for 4 nights in a three-bed dorm. The room is small, but the beds are good. The staff is really friendly (what's in a name?) and very helpfull with a lot of things. Just ask and they will help you with everything. There is only one bathroom in each unit and the toilet is in it. It was a lot better if the shower and the toilet were seperate. Now you have to share them with a lot of people. A lot of Germans here as well, even Google is set in German. The the hostel is a bit noisy. The walls are thin, and you can hear the people walk above you very well. It is located near the beach (5 minutes walk), but too close to a busy road. It is nice, but I think it is more suitable for couples and groups. They take over the living room and the kitchen, before you know it. It looks like a home, but it feels like somebody elses when there are groups and couples around. There is no swimming pool.
