    Felt like a very friendly, family atmosphere during our stay which we loved. Everyone was very welcoming and chatty as soon as we arrived. Bathrooms and kitchen are also some of the cleanest I’ve ever seen in a hostel. 10/10 would recommend!

    Really welcoming and chilled out vibes from the team at Cool Bananas - the owner has heaps of recommendations for activities during your stay and is awesome just to have a chat with. Kitchen facilities are great, rooms have the necessary features (with option to rent any necessary luxuries - hair dryer, straighteners!) and there was enough parking for everyone for a change! Would definitely stay again!

    I really enjoyed my stay here. There's an awesome vibe and I met so many cool people. It's super close to the beach and everything in town. Only complaints are that bedroom doors don't lock so anyone can walk in, but there are lockers. Reception hours are a bit all over the place so don't expect someone here when you arrive. Sheets were a little torn and facilities a little dated. The communal areas can get a bit rowdy at night so maybe not the place for you if you like sleeping early.

    Bit of a mixed one, some of the staff members were really friendly and helpful, but one was pretty moody and unwelcoming which ruined it a bit for me. Hostel itself was fine, but dated in some of the facilities, and security was a bit relaxed, no keys for the rooms and the doors were just left unlocked. We didn’t have any issues but heard about other people who had had wetsuits and other expensive things stollen. Good vibes in the evening, good hostel for a few nights to chill.

    Small and cute hostel, but there was no aircon in the rooms, just a (not really helpful) fan, so it was very hot during the night.

    I think it was the owner, who was great about letting us stay late when our greyhound was delayed and organised a shuttle bus for us. However some other members of staff were particularly rude when I asked a simple question about hot water in the kitchen, giving me attitude and laughing at me when I was trying to wash dishes that had raw chicken on them. Bit embarassing to be acting like children, 3 of them, 1 of me.
