Perfect hostel to stay in during the full moon party! Nice and friendly stuff! Me and my friend just can recommend it especially during the full moon periods!


The bar is amazing, alnd english woman owns the hostel who is always happy to help. One of the best for and cheapest places for food in local area


Great hostel for the full moon party. Really close but wasn't ridiculously loud at night. Sabina was just so nice and helpful. I got home at 3 at the full moon and I heard her out making sure it was only guests who were around the hostel. Only problem was the lockers, I had one and another girl in my room managed to unlock it. Luckily we saw this and told Sabina and she rectified this straight away. Fair price for the full moon season. Could have been cleaner, a lot of cobwebs in our room.


Great staff, always friendly and willing to give you advice and find anything you may need and they make some decent food. The first problem was there was no aircon and only 1 one of the 2 fans was working. I think this was probably my bad for not confirming it on the booking and I think ours was the only one without aircon, so I'm not going to hold it against them. The second and biggest problem was that our mattresses had polystyrene blocks instead of springs? I was too drunk to care, but wtf?


Very happy with the service, convenient location, close to the beach, staff are friendly, would definitely recommend
