It was a good stay. We were in the mixed dorm. Room was clean with good lockers and beds. Nice staff. Good DVD selection in the common area. Good place to meet people, lots of common space. Really good laundry facilities. Only negatives would be: pretty dirty bathrooms and the staff was quite loud early in the morning, so maybe... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful and the rooms we're really clean. Comfortable beds, location was a little off the center which was good, for me, more quiet location. Still a short stroll to the beach and restaurants.
