"The hostel is very close to the coastline and right next to the city centre. Short walking distances everywhere."
"Rooms on the upper level offer the best view on the sea shore. They are also probably a bit warmer because located above the kitchen."
"The dorm rooms have a view over the water. For $20 a night, you can't go wrong!"
"All rooms are very clean and beautiful."
"There is one dorm room which over looks the water as well as two private rooms - a really great view."
US$39 - US$48 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
