Pippies was recommended to me and so I expected more. The staff was really friendly and helpful. But the free wifi was limited and not that good. Atmosphere was not that good, maybe depends on the weird guests. Facilities were o.k. but expected a massive bulit house. And guys... just 2 showers with integrated toilets are not enogh for so many guests, in the area I stayed....especially in the morning. O.k. for a night or two!
The kitchen was absolutely vile! Not cleaned enough and far too small for the amount of people. The bathrooms were equally bad, with water underneath the tiles. Our room was good and clean, and the girl with short hair on reception was so helpful. We did the one day Fraser tour with Mick, so so good!!
Great location and staff very helpful and friendly. Bathrooms not so great and you only have a bed in your room, no locker or even a ledge to put anything on. Daily sunset walk and sand boarding was a great idea. Didn't bother with the breakfast most mornings as is just cheapy toast and instant coffee but great if you are on a very tight budget.
The kitchen was an absolut mess, yes it was dinner time but i've been to a lot of hostels and it pretty much never looked like that. in the shower you had no place to put your stuff but on the floor which was soon wet from the people before you stepping out of the shower. The location is very convinient to the beach and bus station.
