The hostel was great, it was clean and friendly and had everything we needed, the only hitch was having to share one toilet per gender, it was fine until the hostel filled up. The staff were great; friendly, knowledgeable and really approachable about places to go and things to see and where had good surf. Would definitely stay there again and will recommend it to everyone.

Couldn't fault my stay here! The rooms were clean and comfortable and the newly decorated bathrooms we're lush. The breakfasts were so much better than I expected! It's in an ideal location, across the road is a path that takes you straight to the beach in 5 mins and it's just a short walk to the town centre. Also the in house surf school was great, Dale & co were really friendly and offered great coaching specific to you, not just generic advice. Would recommend to anyone, big up base!


Superb lodge with great location and bathrooms. Breakfast was brilliant to!

Would never stay here again, extremely overpriced for a single traveller for the level of accommodation. Not value for money & the rooms need a thorough clean!


Great guys, super flexible and helpful. Room is smaller than looked on picture but not a problem for 1 night's stay. Women's bathroom was fantastic! Best breakfast ever had in a hostel! Surf rental good value and easy to do.
