Staff are amazing and they create the best atmosphere. 15 minute to city centre but buses run all the time. Make sure to do the pub quiz! Don't bother sneaking alcohol in its so cheap at the bar and provides a better atmosphere than drinking goon in your room. The best place we've stayed More

The older man was fairly miserable and should be more friendly. The Internet is only on from 730am to 10pm. It should be 24 hours. The "BBQ" for the pub crawl is a hot dog on a piece of bread. They shouldn't advertise it as something it is not. The pool is small but very nice. The free More

Rooms and ensuites didn't feel like they had been cleaned over the 3 days/nights, maybe just need to be refurbished a bit. Staff were helpful! Didn't like the vibe from other people staying there so didn't use communal areas much. More

Staff repeatedly entered my room without so much as a knock, paid extra for more privacy, which we never got. When questioning staff as to why they were coming into our room... The reply was "checking you were in." More

Very basic hostel - 'swimming pool' more of a paddling pool and never saw it cleaned. Hostel did not put on any events to help socialise. Fairly quiet except the neighbours who were very loud. The staff were great,friendly and helpful. Excellent location - 10mins from centre of surfers. More

Only two full bathrooms for all the rooms. Meaning if two people are taking a shower no one can go to the toilet. More

Despite various cameras around the building and a pin lock on the entrance, it is too easy for strangers to enter the building (as a group of residents usually mingle in front of the entrance - happy to help and let people in who 'forgot' their keys). The rooms cannot be locked from the More

Good hostel with a good location. The free internet and washing/dryers are a really good bonus. Beds were nice but you could hear people outside partying all the time which was very annoying. Still a good hostel overall and atmosphere was chill. I hope they add toilets cause there is a More

I understand that it's difficult because someone has to man the area but most times the guests would like refer access to the kitchen and downstairs common areas at all times. More

A friendly hostel made for backpackers with an over friendly cleaner, however all the facilities closed at 10, the kitchen, lounge area and outside area, forcing us outside at the front of the hostel. I was there to chill out and relax before heading off elsewhere and decided to leave More

The staff didn't seem to care at all. The one girl at the counter was the only one that did anything. The bathrooms were so dirty. We booked one night and even though we decided to stay in Surfers a few more nights I am so gad we moved. More

Great hostel at the perfect location. Very close to the beach and the shops, bars, nightclubs and restaurants. Loved that the dorm looked like a hotel room, with an ensuite bathroom and a fridge in the room. More

WARNING! This hostel is the one you have to go to when all the other hostels are full. I think a reasonable price per night should around 13-15 dollars for what you get. -Alcohol is strictly forbidden. Every night they search the rooms and confiscate all alcohol. Then you have to buy More
