We arrived at our hostel and had to wait a few hours because someone else was in our room. We did get a quick tour and a chance to use the facilities. We made triple checked on numerous sites (including their official site) and all listed that this hostel accepted credit cards so we booked with a deposit. It turns out they did not accept our card so didn't end up staying and LOST OUR DEPOSIT on the hostel. A minor inconvenience but an inconvenience nonetheless; losing money is never good.

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.

We arrived at 6am which I know's early but it took ages for anyone to answer the door & when the woman did she was really grumpy, just saying check in wasn't til later & walking off so we sat on some damp sofas for hours. She also told our friends that there wasn't room which we later realised wasn't true. Price online was 45/night but charged 50. Water freezing & poor pressure. Ensuite bin never emptied. Dirty kitchen without a working fridge. Dog poo everywhere. Most furniture was broken.

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
