      I did not realize this was a hostel it was advertised as a hotel . No tv in room no hair dryer shower was awful you had to keep pressing the button as the water kept going off after a minute or two same as the tap on sink. Kettle tea and coffee provided but no milk . Breakfast well was full of noisey school kids . Had to put food on a tray no plates then there was only croissants dreid up rolls or ceareals , and jam and marmalade disappointed as it said there was continental breakfast so disgusted will not be returning ever again .

      good basic hotel, breakfast bit of a free for all, bit of cheese and ham wouldn't have gone a miss for those without a sweet tooth but over all good value for money

      It should be pointed out that this is not a hotel but a hostel.This is fine but it wasn't apparent from the booking information. The room was really comfortable otherwise. The Wi-Fi was great and the breakfast was good.

      Ok for short stay maybe better in summer.

      Good location for beach and short walk into town. Rooms spacious but sparse furnishing and push button taps and shower, more like a hostel rather than hotel. Breakfast adequate continental but ham cheese and warm food extra in canteen area. Staff efficient and friendly. Bed firm. WiFi ok
