Difficulty figuring out where to check in. Staff wasn't overly helpful. Room smelled and bathroom wasn't clean. The kitchen is only clean if you are the first person in each day. No one washes their dishes & its not enforced. The parking lot is a dump and even has a broken down car. They had a VERY loud band playing in the bar on the property until midnight. There was broken glass and dirty plates outside on the walkway. Lots of people partying. Most people are long term tenants.
This place is for long-term fruit pickers. Not somewhere to stay for a few nights. No one wants to talk to you/hang out. Staff is really nice but otherwise wasn't impressed. The 6 bed room was absolutely PACKED. Should only have had 4 beds. Seemed unsafe with that many people in it. There isn't really a common area to hang out aside from the bar/pub, so no chance to meet folks. RIGHT next to beach which is really the only good thing.
This hostel is more like a motel than a backpackers. It was not clear where to check in, I had to walk past tables full of local people eating whilst carrying my bags. I was not provided any info about the area or hostel when I checked in. I could hear the bar music loudly from my room, the room was cramped, no lockers, only toilets were in bar and ensuite's in room so was a bit smelly. Kitchen area was grimy and in need of deep clean. Wouldn't stay here again.
