The hostel is very close (a few minutes on foot) to the beach and to the town centre (important: for the town centre go the opposite way from the way to the beach:) You will get there in a few minutes on foot rather than half an hour or so going in a long circle - as I did with my kids! - the other way). The rooms are very secure with their own individual code to press on a panel. The owners are friendly and discreet and they leave you alone. The rooms are clean and comfortable, if a bit basic (e.g. if you're a bit overweight, you might struggle in the narrow loos!). The toilets and showers are shared by the neighbours on the floor (about 2 or 3). They have a small tv set in each room and a power point. Wifi works. The aspect of the hostel could be a bit improved by painting the hallway walls in some bright, clean colour, but this is probably not essential. There is breakfast available, but we didn't use it. All in all, probably more than adequate for having somewhere safe to sleep while exploring the seaside for a few days.
