We stayed a couple of nights in a lovely studio room. Room was spacious and clean and was a very good price. Staff were friendly and gave us some good local recommendations on where to eat. Hot pool was a bonus! Will be back again

Great location, very friendly staff, clean communal areas, swimming pool and hot tub! Walking distance to the nearest shops and beaches. I stayed here in Winter but I imagine it would be even better in summer!

We spent two nights staying in a private room at this backpackers and were very happy with the experience. We arrived late and had a key left for us with clear check in instructions.
