Sea front with sea view and balconies for some of the rooms.
Large kitchen and dining area.
Very relaxed atmosphere and great staff.
Good location to the sea front for Weekend market and also town centre.
Sometimes when Hostelbookers or HostelWorld says they have no room it is not necessarily the truth, they remove the vacancies from these websites. Try phoning instead.
