    Great common areas to hang out in, smaller but still quite social and fun, a little quieter at night which was good for sleep, awesome surf instructors and surf boards rentals! Perfect location, just a few steps from the beach.

    Cannot fault Blue Trailz! The aircon is on 24/7, Bluetooth sound system is great, kitchen facilities are decent and it’s one of the best located hostels. It takes about 1 minute or less to the beach and supermarket. The receptionist was super helpful and we found that it’s not just a surf hostel- I didn’t even surf but there are many boards if you want to! Would defiantly recommend

    Solid hostel. I would stay here again. It your main objective is to party it might not be ideal due to the size of the place, but it's a great place if you want chill vibes.

    Blue Trailz was one of our favorite hostels! The people staying here were great, nice little kitchen area, and a chill area to hang out. The rooms have AC which was so nice and they took into consideration Covid precautions. It's a 2 second walk to the beach so you are in the middle of the hustle and bustle, but I didn't think it was too loud or anything. Would definitely recommend staying here.

    Overall good surf hostel, very small. Mostly guys. I made a booking for two nights but they made me checkout and switch rooms for the second night, which is obviously inconvenient and didn't apologize for it. It is operating at about 50% capacity which means only around 10 people stay there at a time which can be a bit too quiet. In the common area mosquitoes will feast on you and we witnessed a cockroach infestation of 5 flying cockroaches at one point. Great facilities and clean tho!

    Property does not have parking even though the website says they do. They also will make no effort to help you when you ask for help.
