Hostel was fairly good. The WiFi was beyong bad. Continued to lose connection in hostel rooms and in restaurant area. The Rock bar was right beneath our room and it played really loud and pretty bad music until late in the night. Scuba diving squad and the whole staff were extremely friendly and it was an awesome place to get your scuba diving certificate.

Amazing hostel - great and friendly staff. Went to another island but came back and stayed at good times shortly again after , as we loved it that much! One of the best places I've stayed! Close to all the bars and sits right on the beach which was lovely. Rooms not too small and free wifi. Hope to come back again

Goodtime was in a great location, tons of restaurants and bars nearby however it is loud at night so make sure you're okay with that. The staff were helpful and the place was clean, it's just slightly pricey for what you get.

Beautiful location right on the beach! Close to diving schools and lots of shops/ restaurants. Be warned that the bar below the hostel plays pumping music until 3am every night! Despite earplugs, hard to get a good night's sleep if you are there for diving. Staff were friendly But not very professional and constantly hungover. Wifi hardly worked, and almost no signal in the rooms. Bathroom wasn't cleaned once in the 4 nights I was there! Expensive hostel for poor-average facilities & service.

Lovely location right on the beach, perfect for snorkelling, diving and lots of bars. However our experience was spoiled by the staff. The hostel advertises itself as a friendly, sociable place, but it felt like all the staff, being travellers themselves, had formed a 'clique', and spent most of their time in the bar drinking. This made the staff very unapproachable if you had any issues or problems because it felt like you were interrupting them. Overall lovely island, but an awkward stay.

Girl with the pink hair was awesome! And their puppies are super rad. Wifi in the common area could be a little better but other than that great hostel very clean. air con! and everyone was just super friendly. Highly recommend! Semi party atmosphere but easy to kick back and have a quiet night too. Centrally located and close to 7/11 and food. Food at the cafe from terry is incredible. Really can't go wrong with this place especially with some of the other hostels in the area.

The Hostel has the best location and view of the Island. It can be loud at night, but I loved it falling asleep with music :) you can book great trips at Goodtyme adventures - where you meet people from your hostel and having a great day for a fair price. Do the sunday funday when you can - I highly recommend it. I loved it there, it was the best place to be for my thirst journey alone! The sfaff was soo friendly and always helpful. (Just amazing) I stayed longer than planned! Thx to everybody

Great location, on the beach and in the middle of all the action. No lounge/common room, although there is a bar/restaurant attached where Terry and his crew serve VERY good food at reasonable prices! Staff are friendly and welcoming, would definitely recommend!

I had a really great time at the Goodtime Beach Hostel, so I ended up staying there over a week. Staff at the reception is great and very helpful and the location is probably the best you can get on the whole island. It is right at the beach and in between great restaurants, 7-Eleven and bars for nightlife. It is true that it is loud during the night due to the rock bar right under the rooms, I never had trouble falling a sleep though. Wifi doesn't work in the rooms.

Great hostel right on the beach. However, there is a bar next door that's plays pounding music until 2 am every night. Great staff and location for all sorts of island activities like diving and rock climbing.

Very loud and poor wifi connection

This is as advertised, the hotel is located literally on the beach and is close to everything. The bar which is just next to the hotel plays music until around 2am so don't go there if you want to go to bed early. Otherwise the staff is super helpful and the Goodtime Adventures located just next door is super convenient for all activities to do on the island.

Great location on the beach but not ideal if you want a good night sleep! It's right on top of a bar that plays loud music until 2am :( The tour company attached is really excellent with friendly staff and good value! Toasties in the morning were a massive plus. Located right in the middle of the main road and the front desk was very helpful!

Had a great time here! The staff is so friendly and accommodating. The vibe in the hostel is very fun and the location is perfect! It's right on the beach and right next to all the fun bars. Would definitely stay here again :)

Nice place to stay in a very Central area. Please be aware there is a night club downstairs so if you're a light sleeper or planning on doing a dive go elsewhere, if you want to party this place is perfect!
