Surfers Haven doesn't seem to have security but the honesty of the people who live in the area. Liz and Tom are very well known and there are only about 650 people living in Gregory Town. The location is stupendous if you want to surf, not so great if you aren't planning to hire a car... Liz was friendly enough and the atmosphere laid back. The cost of the rooms is astoundingly good value for the Bahamas and my upstairs room had kitchenette, fridge, fan and unbeatable view and balcony
The problem with this hostel is the management. You're sharing space with Tom and Liz, the managers / owners. They are very rude and act like they don't want you there, so it makes for an awkward stay. Liz accused us of taking their snorkeling equipment after we had rented it from Tom, they chastised us for having two people in a "one-person" hammock (we didn't know... it fit both of us), and Liz tried to charge us for the last night of our stay after I had cancelled within the guidelines.

Loved the place, really friendly people with a lot of love for their work and the nature. The out door kitchen makes the whole thing complete... Eleuthra itself is a gorgeous island with some of the most welcome and interesting people i've encountered. Do some hitchhicking and you'll be sucked in to their stories and general warmth.
