I stayed here for a couple of nights in a single room - it was clean and not too cramped with a small sofa and coffee table which was a nice touch. The overall feel of the place is awesome and laid back with surfboard stall to greet you on entrance and a nice bar area with a pool table. However the people managing it at the time didn't seem to capture the vision I think the owners would have set it up with. No diving guru's or friendly Singaporians as mentioned in previous reviews - and although the Chinese staff were friendly enough the language barrier meant I really had to find my own way around and things to do. Despite a sign on the lobby desk with numerous things to hire including a bicycle for 60 yuan a day - I was told there are no bikes to hire as they have just been sold. If this is the case it's a real loss for the backpackers as those kinds of small touches can really make someones stay. Luckily it's in a great location and walking distance to most places with reasonably priced taxi's constantly buzzing around. One tip however is to always tell the taxi drivers to put the meter on. All in all a nice stay - but expect to find your own things to do.
