          Bad Place, Bad staff. Rent a Surfboard with many nouns, after bringing back, they said, i made a new noun, so I had to pay 20$. You should rent your board at another place! This is so unfriendly, bad and very unwelcome!!!

          No doubt that you are going to enjoy this place, people are friendly, the quality-price is good, the view and the shape of this hostel reminds me of Gaudi and if you are a surfer this is the place for you.
