The staff. When they realized that the hotel(hostel) did not meet my requirements, they happily suggested other hotels in the area.
It's a Hostel, NOT a hotel. A passport is strictly required in order to stay. Rooms were small, many with bunk beds and only a few rooms had private bathrooms.
The staff was awesome! And the location is premiere. You literally walk right out onto the boardwalk and beach from the front of the Hostel. Also you get discounts at surrounding businesses for staying there! Win-win!
My two major gripes were that my room was stuffy and hot (no air con) and the window I had went out to a central opening that went up to the roof but fresh air didn't seem to make it down the shaft. And the mattress was the worst I have ever slept on.
Great location! I would definitely stay here again!
