Great staff who are there to make your stay a pleasure and are very helpful with information. It's nice being 1 block away from the beach.
Stayed here over the weekend. It's a bit outside the city centre, but it only takes around 20 minutes to make the walk so there's not really a problem. About 10 minutes away you have a shopping centre. Very close to the ocean. The included breakfast was really good and the WIFI connection was really good aswell. There is no bar in the hostel, so if you want to party this is not the right hostel. The people staying there was older. Helpful staff.
The hostel was hard to find because the road names do not really match with the maps of the city. We were said it is because the city is changing so fast. But it could be helpful to have some board on the main road to indicate the location of the hostel.
Skeleton Beach Backpackers has a very Home-type of a feel which was really nice over the holidays! We met great people and the staff is super friendly. Just seconds away from the beach and a few minutes away from the city centre. I would totally recommend this backpackers!
Very nice place, close to the beach. Breakfast was included in the price and served on a nice terrace in the garden. Very friendly staff!
We stayed there for 2 nights and we enjoyed it. Staff was absolutely helpful, recommended a nice and cheap taxi driver and recommended a good camel riding tour. Breakfast was super and cleanliness good. Very good value for money! I would definitely come again. Its about 15-20 min to walk to the city centre....
Comparing to the backpacker hostels in Europe, the quality was much better! Comfortable beds and cozy athmosphere. For those who don't mind walking a bit, the situation is ok.
Great value for money and super-friendly hosts. Beach is literally 150m away.
