Looking for a hostel?

Budget travelers know there's no better way to make the most of their trip than by staying at a hostel: Save money for exploring during the day, and swap stories with fellow backpackers in the shared kitchen or bar in the evening. Dorm-style bedrooms with shared bathrooms are standard hostel fare, but private rooms are also available for those willing to pay a little more.

    The family-owned hostel, great atmosphere. They are always happy to answer your questions and give some advice. Location is good! They also provide cheap breakfasts there what is quite important as to find some open cafes at 8 o´clock in the morning is not that easy.

    It was a better place than I expected. The host was friendly and very helpful, one of the best if not the best hostel I stayed at ever. The room and the balcony were big all for me. It is literally a 1-minute walk from the beach, with plenty of restaurants and stores in the area. The breakfast was great, fresh, and plenty.
