Super chill atmosphere, clean and honest, friendly staff and great wifi.


This is a quiet and relaxed hostel very close to the beach. You are a little away from the shops but the staff are willing to run you into town numerous times a day and you are right by the beach.


Bath rooms where very dirty and old. The vibe was cool but the noise was really loud from party's at night . Didn't quite understand the no noise after 10 pm policy as there were signs everywhere! This hostelr was run by 18 year olds. Didn't really no what was goin on hahha but if your into that amazing location and chilled vibe for sure I recommend it for sure.just wear your things in the shower 👍

Friendly hostel close to Sunshine Beach - free transfer to and from bus terminal (just wait for them) and films on the TV everyday. Lots of kitchen space - love the layout of this hostel (a bathroom and kitchen for every couple of rooms)


A nice small hostel with a great vibe. Location was poor and the shuttle bus service stopped very early. Staff were friendly, but the facilities were a bit lack lustre. Most of the seating area was outside, so not pleasant if it's cold or rains.


Nice hostel, quiet, the staff is welcoming, right next to sunshine beach, clean, good wifi, good atmosphere, hostel for calm and not the party! Just missing lockers in the rooms but pleasant stay!


Cheap accommodation, but not really cheap enough comparing to what you get. We had cockroaches in our room (in the bed also) and in kitchen and bathroom, disgusting. Also some of the staff where just not nice when I spoke to them. But I think my favorite was "we don't provide soap", like really? So if you wanna wash your hands after you've been to the bathroom you'll have to take your own soap with you (wonder how many does that...) Plus side's good wifi, and some staff are really nice.


This place was super cool! Two bedrooms got their own bathroom to share and kitchen. Common area seemed very cool. Did not encourage partiers (which I am for).


You pay way to much for a double room! 90$ together. You have a kitchen with 4 other people, thats good, but not enough stuff in the kitchen. There is 1 toilet and shower for 6 people. One door, so if people taking a shower in the morning, you have to waith a long time for the toilet!! Wifi is not good working.. the swimming pool is a tub, you can not call it a pool. Many stupid rules, and check out 9.30. If you are too late or break a rule, you have to pay 5 dollar! I'm never comming back!


Definitely not a party hostel but a great place to meet people! Really laid back. Lots of rules to keep the noise down but people tend to ignore them a bit! Felt like home after a few days. Really liked it here!


Staff was unfriendly and didn't make me feel welcome at all. The rule signs everywhere made that feeling even worse. Thought the check out rules was a joke first, 9:30 and you have to leave the area or pay to keep your bags?? It could have been a great hostel experience but it wasn't. Two nights was enough for me.


Felt like more of an inconvenience than a valued guest. More effort put into signs telling you what you couldn't do than what you could and very little atmosphere. In addition our aircon broke but even after telling the staff it was not fixed and the rooms were small and uncomfortable. However location was good right next to the beach and regular transport provided.

Cool hostel with a great lounge area. Had a good time staying here. Only down Side was the 5 dollar for storing your bag ( even if it is untill 12pm) i have never had that anywhere else??


I'd read a few reviews before going about bad customer service, but every member of staff I met was nice and helpful. My friend and I stayed in a double room. It was fairly minimalist - just a bed, a towel rack and a tv (didn't use it but assuming it worked) - but I didn't need anything more than that, and the shared bathroom and kitchen were clean and well-equipped.

Not for party people. Except a thousand signs saying "its not allowed to do that" its not a bad plqce. Far away from the city center and place of interest, there is a shuttle bus but the service is over after 5pm.


We had an excellent stay here! It has a very chilled out atmosphere with nice seating areas, hammocks, TVs, freezer


Nice looking place and good to spend some relaxed days but for me a little bit too far from town center. The many proscribtion sings were not good for the atmosphere.


Did not offer any shuttle from Greyhound to hostel. Rude and unhelpful staff and the location and transport to the place was poor. Would not recommend.


really nice outside area with great atmosphere. you can really relax plus the wifi works very well! BUT the shower was moldy and i had to take a cold shower twice and the kitchen had almost no utilities and it wasnt very clean.


Stayed for 2 nights and there was a shuttle from the bus station that took you straight to the hostel that also leaves various times during the day to go by the grocery store and little bit of shopping. There was a lot of rules at the hostel, check out at 9:30 and you can't stay at the hostel after you've checked out and 5 dollars to store bags there. Also no goon and no drinking after 7. Staff definitely could have been nicer as well
