    We really enjoyed our stay at Bazil’s. Once arriving we were able to sign up for a surfing lesson, which was a great experience and definitely the most bang for your buck! The town itself doesn’t have much open late but the staff gave great recommendations for food considering what was open. The staff was awesome and super friendly! We loved the vibe of the hostel- perfectly matched the surf town!

    Fantastic hostel. It is very much a hippy hostel but is cleaner than many other hostels out there. The surf lesson was great— Steve could get you up on a board surfing (and falling) on the first lesson. The staff, for the most part, were incredibly friendly— there were just a few younger girls working who could be a bit short— but the rest of the staff were amazing. This was a really cool experience filled with crazy wall art, surfing, and small town vibes. Highly recommend this to everyone.

    Awesome hostel! Very different to any other hostels I’ve been too but it was a really nice place and they have a lot of seating areas and two kitchens which was a win. Wasn’t really there to explore the town though so I was only there for one night but definitely recommend as the staff and everyone else were lovely :))

    Comfortable bed and clean rooms and facilities in general, though smelt a little of damp around the place. Less enjoyable atmosphere when big coach groups join for one night stays.
