    I have been at Bonga for over a month now and will be here another month. Many people arrive and say they wish they had booked longer. It is the nicest hostel we have seen.

    Surreal. Best hostel I've ever stayed at. The people are so accommodating and will do anything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The rooms are clean quiet and air conditioned, the yard and pool are paradise. Just off of the main street but you feel miles away. Incredible.

    I had a really great stay at Bonga house, the staff were super friendly and helpful. It’s a super chill area, with only one room dedicated to the hostel. Lots of fun, but definitely not a party spot. The locker setup is a bit odd, with only some that you can get a lock on, but since it is such a small place I never had to worry about my stuff. I would definitely recommend this place, good vibes and great people!

    I loved my stay here. The staff make you feel at home, it is quiet even though you’re so close to everything, and there is AC in the dorm. I would definitely come back anytime. The only thing I didn’t love was that there was no kitchen to use.

    It was a very good stay and the on-site restaurant served wonderful meals all through the day! The hostel room is a bit close to the bar so it isn’t silent sleeping but the beds are comfortable and clean! Also, the WiFi was just about gone in the room at about 7 pm every night but the private terrace still had good connection

    Great place! I booked a private. The property was fairly quiet but during the day there were a couple people in the amazing pool. Monkeys and lizards were all around if you pay attention. Very close walk to everything but far enough away from the craziness and noise. The room was comfortable; good AC and hot shower. They could have replenished the coffee at some point, but I also didn’t bother to ask. The owner knew his stuff and was great, talk to him if you need anything or have any issue.

    Very Good

    Big room, with a large bathroom and very nice pool area that shares facilities with bare foot restaurant and Luamey hotel. The property is very close to the beach and all restaurants and bars. It is a single dorm, so it is not crowded, but at the same time you do not meet a lot of people as in most Hostels. All the staff is very nice and accommodating, the only issue I had is that I booked a tour with them and it was actually just a taxi with instructions to take me where I wanted to go.
