    Amazing hostel and would recommend! Only a 10 minute walk from Cable Beach (for sunset viewing) and there's a bus stop right in front to take you to the main part of town. Rooms only have 4 beds, which keeps the rooms cooler and quieter. Big kitchen with plenty of countertop space. Most rooms don't have air con, but there are ceiling and standing fans. The pool is nice to hang out in to stay cool as well. Plenty of hammocks to relax and the common area is great to meet other travelers.

    Man this place was AMAZING, Even though the season hasn’t started there is still a great Atmosphere! Extremely friendly and organised staff, hammocks for days (you’ll never need to eye one off because there is one for everyone!) great layout for if you want alone time or want to be social. Cheap beers & ciders.... did I also mention FREE, FAST WIFI! I loved that you have the option of a fan or air-conditioned dorm that sleep no more that 4 people, AND A CLEAN POOL! 10/10 would recommend!

    Great location - 5 minute walk to Cable Beach, bus stop right out the front of the property which goes into town. Staff were very nice, friendly and sociable which created a fun and inviting atmosphere for all. The backpackers all together has a very “cool” vibe about it. Overall the property, rooms and bathrooms were clean and functional.

    Good, large kitchen and a really nice pool/ outside common area. Very close to Cable beach and located on a nice quiet street. Loads of space for car parking. Nice staff. The showers got a bit gross.

    Only stayed for one night but all in all the facilities are good and rooms are spacious and comfy - we were in a 4 bed dorm. Really clean, has big hot/cold showers and in a really good location close to the beach and bars etc. the hostel is primarily for long term backpackers working so I suppose heading in for one night the atmosphere was lots of people who’d been together for months. Only negative I would have is I felt the staff were a little rude and not to interested in helping etc.
