Really beautiful place with good vibe! I were there at the low season but there were a couple of backpackers there and we had such a great time together and made dinner and laughed and surfed. The location is incredible since you have a 5min(tops) walk to a beautiful beach which I think was good for surfing, and that was my third time ever surfing. If you're not into surfing that's alright because the beautiful beaches with nice sands provide a calm and harmonious environment for you to relax, walk or maybe do yoga.
The place also has surfboards for rent which is really good and they're cheap. I think it's 6dollars for a half day. Though I think the girl who worked in the reception talked about a new place that is about to open and rent boards and if so, they will stop their renting of surfboards but that is not something I know for sure. They also help you book tours or rentals if you want to and the kitchen is really big and they have a huge refrigerator which is really good when there is a lot of people there. The pool is nice and cool after a hot day in the sun and the rooms are clean and nice for the small prize you pay.
The breakfast is not the best one -it's toasted bread with jelly and coffee- and for me, as a vegetarian and not a jelly lover it is quite not enough but everybody is different. No AC but there is fans in the private rooms but only one and it does not help too much but it was pretty okay anyway with the heat. They also have a good tv room that is cosy and a good hang out. Also free wifi internet but it's really slow and hard to get connection from the rooms.
Overall a good, fun, cosy and cheap place close to the beach! And also they have a cosy old dog called Goldie/Goldy.
