    Great place, would definitely recommend. The hostel is literally at the beach, with great common areas. Chilled atmosphere with many guests travelling for months at a time. Volunteers very friendly and helpful. Surf consistently good, and everybody enthusiastic about it.

    Location was amazing, right on the beach! The ac in our room was a godsend and the large kitchen was very nice! Loads of communal areas and the pool table is a nice addition. (Nothing the hostel but remember to bring a lot of cash to rent surf boards etc, as there is no atm near)

    Nice hostel. I stayed there for a week. The staff is nice and the dorms are very confortable. There is no bar anymore and no music playing ever in the chilling area, but i liked it anyway !

    Faultless beach location but place needs some TLC and more power sockets. Bathrooms were not tip top and some furniture needs replacing. Some investment required.

    Nice hostel but for the price it wasn’t completely worth it. There was a leak in the roof leading to a wet spot in our beds and then they started to fix the roof the next morning at 7AM… The kitchen was very good though!

    Main positive is its on the beach. You have to buy your own water. None of the toilets work so using the bathroom is disgusting. The wifi is nearly nonexistent. When I was there, the bathroom flooded so all my stuff got wet. Would not stay again

    I had a great time at the big surf house, I met so many great people and the atmosphere was amazing. The biggest drawback I have to say is that the toilets DO NOT FLUSH. It can get pretty gross sometimes, and I eventually just had to move to another hostel down the beach.

    This place has 2 big problems. First are all the laid back surfer types who don't clean up after themselves and second is that it's not being cleaned enough to keep up with their filthiness. The kitchen in particular was horribly dirty. A lot of things around the hostel are broken and it doesn't seem like anyone cares to get stuff fixed. The volunteers are friendly and helpful and the outside area by the beach is nice although there are not enough hammocks.

    There is zero atmosphere. No nice places to chill. The bar pictured doesn’t even exist anymore. My dorm + en-suite was filthy. The toilet had a massive crack across it and didn’t flush properly. The bathroom door didn’t even close so there was no privacy. When having a shower there was a large window next to it so absolutely anyone outside can see in. The lady on reception was helpful. In the end I didn’t even stay 1 night, I checked out + stayed at a different hostel. Disappointing.
