Awesome stay at Paintshop! The staff are amazing, they go above


we stayed only one night, and they are write when they say on the website that it won't be enough! A really lovely hotel with lovely people, its easy to feel at home!


I love it!!! The staff is young and very kind and willing to help you. Everything is in surf-style, clean and just 5-10 minutes walk from the beach. You really have to stop there!


I've stayed in hostels all over the world and can honestly say this is one of the best I've been to. The staff was amazingly friendly and helpful and made the atmosphere fantastic. Great facilities and really clean. Great stuff!

I loved my stay at the Paintshop Hostel--Debbie and Steve have put together a fantastic place and team. As a solo traveler I found everyone to be welcoming and friendly--by the end of my stay they started to feel like family. The Paintshop is fun and relaxed, whatever you are looking for, and walking distance to the beach. I also give it top marks for cleanliness--the best of all the hostels I have been to and much appreciated. Definitely stay there!


The Owners were amazing . Super friendly staff and very relaxing vibe .


Awesome stay at the Paintshop - I only wish I could have stayed longer! This is THE place to go as a solo traveller - the staff and owners welcome you with a hug like you're an old friend! There was a big group staying when I arrived but I was quickly introduced and felt like I fit in right away. The facilities are great too - the hostel is pristine; clean and tidy at all times. There's a huge TV, pool table and private bar. Genuinely the best hostel I've stayed at in a year of travelling!!!
