This art-deco pub opposite the beach is begging for a boutique makeover, but at the moment backpackers can take advantage of its great location and bargain prices. Dorms have bunk beds (small lockers in the passageway), the cramped and musty doubles have basins, shared bathrooms are clean and there's an excellent communal kitchen as well as a lounge with TV.
