I absolutely love the "vibe" of this hostel. the cafe and lounge areas are fantastic and the staff is fabulous! this isn't the cleanest hostel (bathrooms), but I suppose this will always be a challenge for sand/dirt being tracked in.
This is a typical surf hostel - very laid back and casual. If you are looking for any hint of luxury, this is probably not the place for you. Great location however, amazing breakfast cafe next door and the surf shop attached is very reasonably priced. The only complaint I have would be that, as previously mentioned in reviews, staff are sometimes hard to locate - we were never quite sure who was staff, who was a volunteer and who could actually help us with payment/room enquiries, etc
