we planned to stay only 2 nights here and ended up staying 8! the staff and managers Youri and Sol are awesome and really made the stay. Sir Steve the consumate chutney revolutionary and night time receptionist was great to hang out with and very helpful. i was very keen to surf and they helped organise a board asap. again, the staff are so friendly and we would highly recommend staying here! thanks heaps guys, Fi and Ben
Amazing staff who were really helpful and also fun to hang out with, not intimidating like a lot of hostel staff can sometimes be. Good kitchen, fun bar, close to everything definitely recommend, only downfall was the BBQ we paid for one night....15 usd for some potatoes tomatoes and lettuce and a piece of fatty meat. Other than that couldn't complain!
Met some really cool people here, all the staff are good smily people and always happy to give you their time. Steve is a dude, who would have thought you can put mango in a truffle?
This hostel is unfortunately much over rated because of a few nice rooms (which are pretty nice). However, if you get stuck in the terrible shacks outside (both dorms and privates), be prepared for mosquitoes, mold on the ceilings, only a small window and general unpleasantness. The staff are generally friendly, but as they are pretty much exclusively foreigners, they can only tell you about the touristy activities that they sell.
