The Escape is a great hostel for backpackers. The staff is really nice and there is nothing bad about the dorm. Located near to the center you can reach everything by foot. The hostel has very good connections to the local surf school. Would definitly recommend.

Stopped for a week with my three mid teen age children. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by the owner and offered complimentary drinks. Nothing was too much trouble. The hotel has free parking, a massive bonus for us. It is centrally located, just around the corner for the launderette (we stopped for 7 nights), aldi, yes cos, burger king, subway and other eateries. The beach is next to aldi too. There are other beaches too. It does get lively at weekends, due to stag and hen parties but we all joined in and had a good boogie.

We had a great week at the Escape. The beds were comfy and the showers were hot. An ideal place to crash after our days out at the beach and the surfing lessons. The accommodation is very basic but with plenty of plug sockets and free wifi it provided everything we needed. The staff were brilliant, helpful and friendly and the barbecue was a welcome opportunity to mix with other guests.

Room Tip: Speak to Gerry, he's always happy to help

It is not comfortable e not really nice the room. It's ok only if you are young. The only good thing is the staffs. The car park is really small. In the middle of the night noise came from everywhere .

Stayed here for 3 nights with a friend, rooms are a bit small, but it is what you pay for.
Bar downstairs is lovely and friendly, bar staff and chef are brilliant fun and very hard working. This place is perfect for spending time with friends and hens/stags etc . Great location near to everything and has parking. A great find
