> Located less than 75 metres from the bus stop.
> A large terrace, which provides a truly world class view.

You may also find the following information useful:
> If you do intend to drive, street parking is a possibility. If you park in an illegal parking space, or in a space that endangers drivers (i.e. on a corner), you risk receiving a parking fine. If you visit during the peak season, it can be difficult to get a parking space.
> There are a minimum of 742 steps to and from the main beach. This means that most people will find the walk back to be quite exercising. If you do not want to walk, there are options. For most, the best option is to catch the bus, which runs every 15 minutes in the main part of the season, and every 30mins during the low part. A round trip is priced at $1,20 euro if you pay before boarding, or $1,60, if you pay on the bus.
Many Cooking classes and wine tastings are available please email the hostel to book.
> The Salone - our value dorm option - is located near to the terrace and is popular amongst guests who enjoy our night-time activities; if you go to bed early and are a light sleeper, we recommend choosing another option - for example, other dorm options include regular, premium, and female only dorms.
> We maintain a 72 hours cancellation policy.
