    Best hostel we’ve stayed at in a long time! Perfect location - just a five minute walk to the main strip of bars/restaurants/shops, spacious bedrooms with comfy beds and a privacy curtain, plenty of shower & toilet cubicles, very tasty free breakfast and friendly staff. We wouldn’t stay in any other hostel whilst on the island.

    Stayed at private room at Broken Compass for 5 nights, and I enjoyed my stay a lot. Room was clean and comfy. Everyone working at Broken Compass is super friendly and attentive, and they’re always there to help if needed. I loved grabbing a drink (or a few) at their bar area. Would stay here again! On the side note if you’re a diver or consider to start diving, check out their dive shop Compass Divers. I dived at different locations and this shop is by far the best I have dived with!

    Easily the best hostel I have stayed in for a long time. Homely, comfortable, fun and peaceful at the same time. Food is second to none as well as the staff. Owner is kind, thoughtful and very invested in his guests, always asking how you are and how your day is and quick with a smile and compliment. All in all everyone at broken compass makes you feel comfortable, at home and welcome. Hard to find in the service industry these days. I highly recommend for an type of traveler.

    Absolutely loved my stay here. Lovely hostel, quite quirky in its design! Super clean, amazing and friendly staff who went above and beyond to help out visitors. Location was fantastic, right around the corner from the Main Street and beach. Not a party hostel but still full of people willing to have a chat. One thing worth noting is to bring earplugs if you’re a light sleeper - BC is next to a Mosque and Call to Prayer starts at 4.30am.

    Had a very nice stay here. Very chill vibes. The rooms are big with lots of storage space. Bed was kind of loud when you move around. The bathrooms were big and clean. I liked that they were gender separated. The pool is pretty good, looked a little dirty but I think it’s bc it’s a salt water pool. One big downside is that you can hear the sound to prayer which is annoying, especially in the morning. Overall a solid hostel and I would stay here again.

    Great location, 3 minute walk from the boat. Yes, you can hear the mosque. But you can hear the prayers everywhere on the island.

    4 guys split between 2 Deluxe Rooms. Location is a few mins walk from the harbour which is also where strip of bars/clubs begins. Means you also cannot really get lost coming back here. Staff were great, manager is also and was doing face painting for everyone on Halloween plus also showed the RWC semi's while we were there. Would definitely recommend to stay here but it is not a party hostel by any means and there are much livelier places to stay on the island.

    Pros: Clean dorms & bathrooms Always enough showers/toilets Amazingly friendly staff Nice chill out areas and pool Near all party hostels so you can choose whether you want to be among that atmosphere or not Great activities such as snorkelling trips Good value for money A/C in dorms Close to beach/bars Cons: The mosque next door was a massive problem for me as I’m a light sleeper and this woke me daily @ 4/5 a.m even using ear plugs so I could not stay again unfortunately.

    The hostel is really nice, I like the design and that the dorm rooms have only 3 people in them (not like other hostels where it is usually 6-10 people in one room). Not a party hostel but quite easy to meet people if you want to. Although I really enjoyed my stay, what I didn’t like was the WiFi quality, it was so slow or sometimes did not work at all which was quite frustrating when trying to plan the next steps of my journey .
