Last but not least, the host was very kind and helpful, he did whatever he could to make my stay a peaceful one. Definitely a good choice if you are looking for a budget place to stay.

    Travelled off season in February so unfortunately a lot of pools/restaurants/supermarket closed. Food was average. Apartments are great size, very clean, comfortable, all necessary equipment available. Walking distance to beach. Very safe area. Have to get taxis to get to old town/new town/shopping centres. Ubers made this very easy and very cheap. Fabulous Italian restaurant portobello just up the road

    The best hostel ever! I loved it here, so I extended my stay for another 5 days! Cris and all the other staff are so friendly. I felt at home immediately :-) I‘ll definitely come back for sure! Had the best time here! Perfect for people who travel alone and want to meet new people from all ober the world :-) The rooftop is amazing, as well as the food there. All the dorms have AC (much needed during the hot summer months).

    Safe, peaceful, comfortable, great location, and good budget. We did not use air conditioner even once. I liked the room with the balcony since I enjoyed coffee and cookies every morning outdoor. Airport transportation was great and economic. Seemed to me lady dominated family business so power to the women 💪🏽
