    Ah the Arts Factory, a place of magic and new adventures. you will meet the kindest and coolest people at this hostel. from the friendly staff like Michael to the vibrant energy of the other guests. It is a time capsule. If you feel like going back to your roots really finding a reconnection to nature this is the place to go. The cool villas by the water to the awesome jungle area. I've created life long friendships and memories due to this amazing place. Ps. do not feed the birds they are pests

    Such a wonderful place to spend the last week of our trip. There's a lot of love in that place. We got a private room and it was well worth it. Thanks for a nice time!

    We stayed in the private double room and it was amazing, so comfortable and clean. Had a fridge which was a great bonus! Location is great, close enough to the town and beach but nice and secluded. Trivia night was fun and the atmosphere of the place was great. Would stay again!

    Had a great time at the Arts Factory!! Came as a group of 5, booking was easy online and everything confirmed quickly. Staff were really friendly and overall people were really welcoming! Had a fun, chill vibe - especially considering we went for Splendour in the Grass (music festival) and came back with the muddiest shoes and clothes I've seen! Coffee at the cafe was great! Would recommend staying here & will probably stay again in the future!

    We had a lovely stay in a private two bed dorm with shared bathroom. The bathrooms were clean and we had one of the hottest showers at all - amazing! We didn’t use the kitchen as it was way too dirty but there are heaps of possibilities around to find a place to eat. Wifi is pretty much broke and even the general network isn’t the best in this area. Nevertheless, we had a great time at Arts Factory Lodge.

    Nice place, on certain nights really good atmosphere. Others it can be very quiet. Nice clean kitchen. Found the bed mattresses a little uncomfy but the duvets made up for that. Password to get into dorm is great. Bathroom was a little dirty and it smelled of smoke in the pool room but apart from that it was good

    Toilets were sometimes dirty. I k ow this can't be helped but the vibe and atmosphere that came from a lot of the clientele was very hippie dippie and not my scene. Too much night time noise as well

    Stuff were not nice, too bad. They changed our room without saying to us, at first we didn't realize they did. We paid more money for room, but actually they bring us to another room. WiFi is also bad. You can't use it. Kitchen are always messy and dirty.
