    Cannot understand the bad reviews for this place! It was the most relaxed and homely hostel we’ve stayed at with great activities, advice and atmosphere. The surf lessons were so much better than at Byron and went on for double the time so well worth it (shout out to Wes and Berni!). Thanks for making us feel so at home and the fun WiFi riddles!

    Very Good

    01 May 2018
    Pros: Really awesome surf school called Gnarly Tours associated with the hostel. Comfy beds. Spacious rooms. Nice common space. Wifi blackout for “family time” is a neat idea. Cons: Lady at reception came off very nice at first but quickly became moody and rude to me for no reason. If you work in hospitality you should know better than to be inconsistent with ppl and treat everyone the way you’d like to be treated. This unfortunately killed my vibe at an otherwise really nice hostel.

    Very Good

    Very chilled out, not really for us. Depends what you’re looking for. It doesn’t seem a very social hostel but maybe we were unlucky in timing. Staff are so friendly and helpful and want you to have the best experience. A really nice family atmosphere. Although they don’t give keys out to lock your room. Or the locks don’t work either, strange.
