Great location, in front of the beach. Bar stays open until midnight so if you want peace and quiet, better choose one of the back rooms. Friendly staff. Great place to party and meet nice people.

Cant really think of anything wrong with this hostel! Great view! right on the beach! also the free scuba intro is handy
Really good hostel! Toilet was just a bit dirty.
We were there for the NYE full moon party, not our kind of music but still a great night! The little dorms/huts are cute and have aircon & lockers, big toilet and shower blocks meant there was never a wait. Kitchen was not the cleanest and had a lot of ants as its outside. Great pool and bar area though with awesome views. Don't walk with your pack to the hostel from the ferry, its further than it looks on a map! Regular buses means its easy to get to other areas of the island.
Great pool area and lots going on here. The bar closes at 12 so you still get a decent sleep too. The bathrooms were good but the kitchen was terrible. Full of ants. So much so that I lived off toast here just to be quick in there. Bus connections are easy and the drivers and nice and helpful.
This hostel is all about the location...Amazing!!! Rooms look good from the outside,little individual huts, they are v.basic but it's all part of living literally on the beach. Bunk beds need sorting, so squeaky you can't move at night without waking your whole dorm! Staff know nothing about the 30minutes of free Internet that is advertised on hostel world. Great stay and easiest place to meet others.
