Very clean and accommodating hostel. Sylvia (the front desk) was great in helping me check in late, providing recommendations for places to visit, and also renting me my trusted bicycle which saved me many miles of walking! Would highly recommend a stay here. Location is a 20 min walk from the train station, and another 20 min or so walk from Waiao beach.
