    We really enjoyed Black Wood! The staff is great and it’s lovely that they have Gonza cook crêpes/pizza on week-end nights for guests ! Everything was very clean and well located near the pier and diving centers.

    An amazing place, the best staff I ever met during my adventures, clean, free coffee/ tea and biscuits. Very close to the Pier and all bars and restaurants. Fall in love with this place. Highly recommended!!!

    We loved our stay here. It is a very small hostel and fairly quiet so definitely not a party place, however they do have a bar and guests have access to the kitchen to cook their own food. Walking distance from the pier and plenty of shops/restaurants. The staff absolutely make this place though, Anne and Mia are so welcoming and super helpful. I would 100% recommend!

    Great place, great location, Gonza is awesome. Really chill place by a ton of great restaurants and the water. Spring mattresses and hard pillows make for a pretty uncomfortable sleep and no soap for the bathrooms.

    The location was really good. About a 10 minute walk from the main beach. Loads of shops and things around. It wasn’t the cleanest hostel and facilities are pretty basic. It has a decent chill area, it’s quite easy to mingle and talk to people. Very chilled vibe. We didn’t get a key for our room and the door was left open all night. So it certainly didn’t feel secure. Free coffee all day and biscuits were also great. Some staff members were extremely helpful and easy to chat to.

    I had a good stay here... the staff were friendly and helped book snorkelling tour, tent a bike and my onward boat trip. The location is close to the pier but not as close to the busier restaurants and bars near Sairee (about 25 min walk). It was very quiet when I was there so not much atmosphere but it’s what I expected being out of season. No locks on dorm rooms but there is a small locker where you can use your own padlock to lock up valuables.

    If you’re staying for just a day and doing a snorkelling trip then this location is perfect. However, if you are wanting a night life on the island it’s too far from Sairee Beach. My sheets had dirt and grit on when I arrived and they turn the air con off until 6pm! Staff are super friendly.

    The hostel lies a little hidden off the main road in the woods, so there were mosquitos, geckos and spiders in the room. The beds and pillows are all wrapped in plastic?! unfortunately this did not feel very comfortable at all. Very nice staff working there though, nice common area to chill out together.

    The location sucks. Hard to find. Shower water was cold. Lots of mosquitos outside. Beds are not comfy. I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone

    Horrible. The staff member Ann was being very unfriendly, rude and aggressive and shouted at the guests. What i saw in the bungalows was horrendous - they let their guests sleep on mattresses on the floor. So they don't even get a proper bed for their money. The lights weren't working properly and we didn't get any keys for the dorms, so that basically anybody could walk into our dorms. The only thing i liked about this hostel was that it was close to the port, so i didn't need to get a taxi.
