Great hostel. Free surfboard hire! great staff
Great place to stay! I stayed in a mixed 4-bed room with shared bathroom. Great staff! And you can hire bikes to go to the beach (but its also in walking distance), and free surfboards!

my widow-less dorm smelled like URINE, and there was only 1 person already there when i got there. the a/c squeaked so loud all night and the opening of nearby doors shook our door everytime. although the staff were constantly cleaning, the carpets never appeared clean. flies everywhere in the kitchen, and the ceiling was decorated with overly full fly-strips. had a good selection of games and movies, though which were helpful during the rain.
There were two receptionist who were not nice, to nobody. If you asked something they were annoyed and reacted like your question was stupid. The second thing was: I called before if there was work. And they said, if you come and stay with us we will help you finding a job. But they only gave you a list where the job agency's were ( I can look that up on google ) and I went there but no work. So it is a way to attract backpackers I think. For the rest I enjoyed it a lot and great people!
No wi-fi at all included.
Really really enjoyed this hostel, the staff where so friendly and very welcoming! Great place to stay and atmosphere of the hostel was brilliant. Il be back one day. Wifi isn't the best but who needs wifi when you have great people to talk and staff to keep a smile on your face. Thanks for everything Brooke,Tash and the rest!
Staff were really friendly and welcoming and there were loads of tips from staff all over the notice board with recommended places to visit which was really helpful. It is a great atmosphere, with loads of spacious areas to relax in and watch TV or play board games. The facilities are shared and kept really clean. The only cleanliness problem is in the kitchen/outdoor seating area, through no fault of the hostel staff, can be messy as guests don't always tidy up after themselves
