This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Welcomes at YHA hostels are almost always friendly, but this one still stood out to me by how welcoming the reception was. Staff is very helpful, and the place has great atmosphere.
It's a bit of a hike from this place into the center of town (not bad at all by big city standards, but more than you'd expect for a small town), but on the plus side, the place really is right at the beach (as you'd expect from its name), and there's great views over the bay from the upstairs lounge area.
