    Excellent hostel! fun and friendly staff. Good atmosphere for the younger backpacker. I got free breakfast, a welcome drink and 30 mins of internet included in my stay because i booked through hostelworld! Only the second hostel i have ever stayed in (first was bungalow bay) and although both were great, this one was more fun and had a beautiful location facing the water.
