Only downside to my stay was other guests being inconsiderate with the noise levels.

Not a guest house
This accommodation may be listed as a guest house, but it's a youth hostel full of backpackers/communal room and kitchen full of 18-year olds from the UK and Europe. If that's your thing, go ahead and book. If you want to stay in an actual guest house, I'd recommend booking somewhere else.

So clean. Very friendly lady at check in. Very helpful. Close to the beach. We would 100% stay here again. The place had character and not a standard run of the mill hotel room

Great location and clean rooms
The area is fantastic and the location is great, really close to the beach, restaurants, supermarkets, etc. The rooms are quite small though and you need to jump to get on/off the bed. Very clean, the communal kitchen was a plus for us.

Great but could be amazing
Great location and a nice feel to the place, with a few changes could be amazing! 1. rooms were tidy and comfortable but needed a deep clean as quite dusty 2. Air con needed as some rooms were far too hot 3. Bins in kitchen are too small so fill up very quickly with all the guests and have swarms of flies around them. 4. More staff needed! Jasmyn was amazing but literally didn't stop all day and seemed to be in charge of guests requests, bookings, front office, cleaning and managing the phones. 5. Lots of unnecessary extra charges. We stayed for just under a week and if we wanted our bed changed during this time, or a new towel, there was a large charge. Also checking in between 12-2 was extra, as was checking in past 5. We were quite shocked by all of this as we're used to paying a lot less money for hostels which try to accommodate all of the above and usually with no extra charge at all.
