    I’ve stayed here before and will probably stay again! Such a cozy and comfortable atmosphere, as well as plenty of options for partying if that is what you are looking for ! Great location as it’s a 5 min walk to the beach! Hostel is kept tidy and staff are all very friendly and welcoming!

    Hostel is in a great location & the staff and people were really friendly, I came here alone but quickly made friends and it really felt like home. Perks such as free WiFi and laundry and breakfast definitely put this hostel above the rest on the east coast I’ve stayed in. Big shout out to the party reps Dylan and Sean who organise the night out for the hostel each day where we met up with other backpackers hostels and gave us promotions in the clubs too. Definitely recommend!

    Had a great time at this hostel, all of the staff were very nice and helpful. Location is great as it’s right near the main beach, nightlife and restaurants. They also put on an awesome bar crawl.

    This is probably one of the best hostels we have stayed in, literally has everything a traveller needs!! Only minus for me is that our room had no curtains or blinds so the sun woke me up every morning when it raised.

    Bunk beds were a bit noisy in the 4 share I stayed in but otherwise it was a great hostel. The free breakfast was great and it had a good atmosphere. From chilling out and watching movies to partying at the nightclubs, there was something for every traveller. The availability of computers in the common room was also a bonus.

    Only stayed for one night, but personally wouldn't have been able to stay much longer. The kitchen was spacious and had plenty lockers for food but there wasn't actually much space to actually cook. The breakfast provided was great, only 2 options but it was a good size breakfast, however the hostel seemed to only have about 5 forks at the time I was there, and a limited number of mugs for tea/coffee

    We booked 2 beds in a 10-bed dorm, but only one was available by the time of arrival. The staff then managed to move us together to a 14-bed dorm. Sadly, we got no discount and still had to pay the whole amount for the 10 bed dorm. It was also really loud at night time.
