Great stay at Western Beach Lodge, family atmosphere and Mark is helpful and friendly.


The owner is very forth coming and even have me a bed to sleep before I could normally sign in. Very highly recommended.


Good hostel overall. But when we got there we did not get the room we had booked with ensuite bathroom and we really did'nt get any reason why. Quite strange manager at this hostel.


The hostel is nothing but a party house for long term renters. The girls dorm bathroom is overrun with cosmetics and products all over. No one ever locks the door of room. Patios are right outside from dorm rooms, so hear absolutely everything that goes on. A lot of fun and laughs if you are looking for a party hostel. If you need a rest, definitely look elsewhere you won't get it here. No staff after 9pm so it's like these long timers own the place! 5- 10 minute walk to beach!


Great place to start a vacation. Location is second to none. Couldn't ask for a better place to relax

Mark and his wife were very kind and helpful in every way. I'm sure they will have great success in their new business. If in the area I would stay here again. /Cheers Carina - Sweden

Thanks for the positive feedback.


The new owner mark is a legend. Extremely nice guy! I had a great time and the shower was fantastic. The only bad parts were the mattress on my bed had every spring gone on it, extremely uncomfortable. Lockers definitely needed! Nothing worse than carrying your valuables everywhere with you. Kitchen closed at 9 rule needs to be enforced. Idiots kept waking me up at 2am every bj the using the microwave and slamming cupboards. Extremely roudy people up until 1am. Overall a great stay though!

Many thanks for the comments - we appreciate the feedback. We are going to be replacing the mattresses over the next year. We do have lockers - but you do have to ask for them. Happy you enjoyed your stay overall!
