We had a relaxing stay at the Dougies. Our double room was, compared to other hostel double rooms, very nice. TV and fridge was included, which we really enjoyed. There was a relaxing atmosphere in the resort. People were very kind. The lavatories were really dirty. People did not remove their hairs after shaving. In women's lavatories a men got an haircut. In the evening it was really hard to cook and have dinner. The kitchen was dirty, after several groups didn't remove their dirty stuff.

I LOVED this place! It was more like a resort than any other backpackers I've stayed in. Nice chilled atmosphere, great staff. Very busy. A bit of a walk into town, but close to the beach. Thoroughly recommended and great value for money


Super place. Staff are like encyclopedias of information! Really enjoyed our stay here


Nice rooms with lockers, big block of showers/toilets and really good bar and outdoor area. The kitchen isn't very clean, but you get given your own plates, bowls etc so isn't too bad. Location is ok - near the beach and about 20 mins walk to main street. Good overall atmosphere and friendly staff.


First impressions were good. Seemed clean and friendly with a lot going on. Some staff members were unwelcoming and clearly didn't want us there. We were eaten alive by bed bugs so I won't be staying here again.
