Was recommended to stay here by people met travelling but would not recommend to another. The staff were friendly and helpful, the site clean with a great atmosphere and the option to use surf boards etc was great. However, the 'free unlimited wifi' is actually only available in reception and gets turned off at 10pm. The location is okay but...

Good beds, nice kitchen and the best staff! The minute we got here we extended our stay with a couple of night and we're not regreting it a bit. The vibe at this hostel is just so good, everyone here is in a good mood. Matt is the best.

Really social hostel with a great vibe. Staff are all very friendly and everything is clean. The BBQ is a great way to meet people and a nice night. Beds are comfortable and rooms spacious. Lots of free rentals. Only negative is that there are no lockers.

I absolutely loved this hostel. I was only supposed to stay for one night then ended up extending for three more. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The common area was awesome since it is outdoors and in the middle of all the rooms/right beside the pool. It was nice being able to cook meals and sit outside. More...

Great hostel. Located in the centre of everything. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Bedrooms were clean and spacious. Shared bathroom and shower were extremely clean. Very social atmosphere. Would be ideal for solo travellers. Kitchen facilities were great and it was spotless. Pool was good and clean. Overall great place to stay.

The common area was a great place to meet new people and play games. Great pool with shade and sun. Grass volleyball court was fun too. The staff were great for directing you to daytime activities and bars at night. Lots to do. Nice rooms and comfortable beds. Will be back!
