When checking in we were informed that we'd only booked 2 beds in 4 bed dorms and no guarantees were made that we would be in the same room. When asking how this is the case, the very rude staff member quickly became defensive and advised "If you wanted to stay together, you should have booked a private room". She was incredibly unhelpful and very unsympathetic about the matter. It took 2 nights and constant asking for us to be able to get into the same room. We would not recommend!
Nice hostel for the price, not that close to the beach but close enough. Good wifi and a nice common area. Security is awful. Although highly stressed that visitors weren't allowed, the main entrance was never locked and our door to the dorm didn't close properly so was frequently open - thank goodness there were lockers. Very much a 'you get what you pay for' hostel, but would stay again, the breakfast, iced tea and bbq were a nice touch.
It felt like we were being welcomed into someone's home. A great place to stay, would highly recommend. Thanks Brian for all you did :-)
The hostel was one of the friendliest we've stayed in whilst in the USA. Danny and co are ace and made us feel very welcomed in their home. A great hostel for single travellers as its an easy way to meet other people. Organised events including tours, bar crawls and 'family dinner and movie' was a great touch. One small thing - tall people weren't considered when the showers were installed (not everyone is as tall as your Danny! hehe) Apart from that great location, great staff, great hostel
