    Noisy at night...but hey, it’s summer and everyone is on vacation and merry-making. Very quiet place off season, even in June before the waves of beachgoers arrive.

    Cheerful, new, bright decor. Great, firm mattress, right near the beach. Good selection of eateries with sea views nearby.

    We had to sit by the stairs for the stronger wifi which isn't the greatest, but it's also not a deal breaker when everything else is perfect.

    Planned to stay for a few nights, and stayed for a week and a half. This place had a GREAT location for the beach and walking around. The cleaning service was SO NICE and really cared about how your room looked. The staff and cleaning service was really amazing. The bed was extremely comfortable.

    The toilet flush was pretty weak, had to flush it several times when I went number two for it to go away.

    The price is excellent for the place,the room was cleaned thoroughly by the cleaning staff. The room was very spacious for a single room in a hostal, I've seen smaller ones in some Spanish hotels.

    No designated parking You had to ask for coffee at the bar. Flies were touching the food

    It was raining so hard when I stayed in this hostal. However, I managed to fight the rain. No parking space in from of the hotel. Available parking space is a block away or two. The staff was friendly. However, one got mad at me when he found out I didn't turn in the room key when I stepped out to check out the town. I was not informed I had to leave the key. Great location- 1min from the beach! Nice bedroom with own bath!

    Our visit was better than expected- while our room was "small" it was cozy but not cramped. It fit the two of us perfectly once we unpacked and stowed our suitcase. The hotel staff were very helpful as well- they easily called us cabs when we needed them too. The shower stall was small by US standards but perfectly sufficient with plenty of hot water to go around. Our room on the second (top) floor was indeed soundproof and that was nice!
