Basically you might as well be at a resort. Ocean, pool, bar, restaurant of sorts. $1 bus in and out of town and connections to other cities is a breeze. You can get your wash done at a great rate. We had a private room which was great although we could have used a fan. The staff was very very friendly and helpful. I would go back anytime, no complaints at all.
My sister and I booked this hostel on the basis of its rating on HostelWorld. We were disgusted at what we found when we got there. The dorms we falling apart, literally! The walls were coming off and all the debris was all over the beds. There was a door to the toilet in our dorm which led outside, the lock to this door didn't work so people could easily get into our dorm. We went back to Bamboo beach and got a different room in Tropic of Capricorn which was MUcH better!

Nice place to stay at for a few nights, it's owned by Bamboo so that's where the reception is, just down the road. Just like every hostel in the area, doesn't have a kitchen, but you can use cutlery and plates and a kettle. Quiet and very clean (except the pool), lockers in the rooms, although no room key is provided. They picked us up on the main road when we were lost and didn't know how to get there :)
Lovely and clean and quiet. Recently been bought out by bamboo lodge just down the road so there's no sign at the bluewater, which is confusing. They really need to sort out their key system too; mine locked me out of my room when I went to the toilet at 7am on the morning I was leaving, so I had to walk down the road to bamboo's reception, where they told me they often do that if you leave the room on the day you're checking out, even though check out wasn't until 10. Luckily I was dressed.
