Fantastic area, better staff
The room itself does have a well aged aspect to it. This is more than compensated for with the price and completely overwhelmed by the friendly and welcoming staff.

If location is only of your interest
Location is right across the beach and convenient to stroll the city center. Ample off-street parking provided for guests. Bathrooms and toilets are shared. There are only three each. Facilities are quite old.

This is a hostel
it was clean
I was a bit disappointed to find it was a hostel. Nothing in the description of the place said it was a hostel and very overpriced at $71.00 for just a room with bed.

Pretty much how I expected. Only suggestion is a power point in bedrooms to charge cameras etc. I had to put my camera charger in the kitchen overnight as I had nowhere in my room to plug it in. However I notice there was an oil heater in the room so not quite sure how you would use that??

Youth hostel
Wasn't easy to get there as the sign for the beach was not remarkably up. But the room was clean enough as a youth hostel.
