    I stayed at wake up for 1 night before Aquarius and Aquarius was way better! Rooms are basic but clean and some have a balcony/outside area which is really nice to have. The kitchen is clean and the staff are really nice. The free dinner is amazing (I wish more hostels did it!) and it always brings everyone down into the bar, making it really social as usually you join in with the games/events on in the bar. It’s got a pool, 5 min walk from the beach, and round the corner from the Main Street.

    Phenomenal hostel! $25 for not only a decent room with a bathroom, but a free meal every night? Ridiculously good, great fun at the events they run every night, fun bar and chill atmosphere, super great location.

    Great location with really helpful staff. Close to the beach and the nightly dinner is a great plus. Only issue was the bathroom was quite dirty and I didn’t find that it was being cleaned daily.

    The double accommodation are just outstanding. Bright, larg, clean and so beautiful. The staff is really nice and happy to help anytime. The dormitory are nice, just above the pub, not reccomend them if you are a light sleeper. Loves the area with hammocks. I found silly that while the pub is opened the access to the dormitory is at the back of the hostel and I haven't been informed about it during check in. Not a big deal though.

    Hostel atmosphere was amazing and great free food. It’s perfect for a solo backpacker as there is lots of social events. Rooms are not cleaned at all only the bedsheets are changed so floors are sandy and gross. Bathroom is only mopped not cleaned which is poor so cleanliness really lets this hostel down

    Nice place, very cheap for drinks ! Pretty good facilities and rooms cleaned often. Nice location also. However you have to pay if you want Wifi in the room which sucks.

    Beds were pretty tragic, but everything else was grouse. Free dinner has to be one of the best hostel perks out there and on top of constant events, cheap drinks and lovely staff, I’ll probably still keep coming back here :)

    Very Good

    Had a really good time here! It was good for price , however when arrived the bathroom hasn’t been cleaned it said on the cleaning sheet hadn’t been cleaned until the day before there was hair and was not clean at all. Would stay again if the bathroom was cleaner The staff who worked there were quite intimidating unfortunately. Rowdy on a night.

    Location great. Free food at night great. Some staff members great. Luggage bag room great. Everything else was disappointing. Room cleaners although frequent.. didn't do a great job (even though there's loads of them?) I used to be a house keeper and I couldn't get over some of the stuff they get away with. Sand all over bedding all the time. (Have a dust pan in rooms or a towel per room would solve a lot of this). Very very VERY loud hostel . Party hostel. All hours. Fun night staff seem bored

    Security was rubbish, wristbands were never checked and as all the dorms had keys nobody ever locked them a new system is needed here. The bar was always quiet so difficult to meet anyone. Rooms were cleaned twice a day but not properly, bathrooms were always awful. One bathroom for ten people is much worse than other hostels I’ve stayed in. You do get a free meal everyday though which is good
