Decent hostel with a great surf school! The instructor we had was brilliant and a really nice guy, can't recommend him enough! Only 1 good set of showers in the place... The rest of them are a little worn and a bit dirty if I'm honest. Atmosphere was good but again it depends on the More

We enjoyed our stay but unfortunately found that the shuttle bus from town was not there (whilst other hostel shuttle buses were) when our Greyhound coach was 5 mins later than the pick up time. That said we were allowed to check hours early which we were very grateful for on a very rainy More

Enjoyed our 2 nights stay, we stayed during the festival so was quite quiet through the night, facilities were clean, good walking distance to the town and the beach, had a great night out at cheeky monkeys, only downside was all the deposits that are not mentioned on hostelworld.com but More

We had a lovely time staying here! The staff were very friendly. We went on the free tour to the lighthouse with Todd who was lovely and offered a lot of encouragement despite us lagging behind on the walk! The tour was amazing and well worth it! The rooms were clean and the atmosphere was More

Lady at reception when we first checked in was very moody and wasn't very helpful. She just told us we can check in "whenever the room is ready". Other travellers using the hostel don't clean up after themselves and leave pans and soggy omelettes in the sink. Other than this the place was More

Could not wish for a better place! Only thing is that the music was sometimes a bit to loud on daytime. More

Very clean hostel with good facilities but kicks you out of the main areas by 10pm so you can't really socialise... Was good for 1 night More

The hostel was very nice and the staff were very help. Be careful who you room with though as we ended up with a drunk guy who was screaming things in his sleep which was a bit off putting. More

The only available cabins (better said tents) were anything but pleasant to sleep in. You can literally hear everything that your neighbour is talking about, or even better was the live music that was going on next door! Thanks for the heads up that we won't be sleeping on Friday nights. More
