    Great place to chill at the beach and/or party. Easy to meet people and socialize. Very accommodating staff who let me take a call in a private room while it was pouring down rain. The whole team there goes above and beyond to ensure you have a great stay. Do everyone a favor and pick up a bag of trash on the beach !!

    This hostel delivers above and beyond any expectations! I extended from 2 to 10 nights. The atmosphere is so welcoming, you meet people very easily at the pool/daily volleyball tournament/family dinner nights and the employees made me feel like family! The location of this hostel is just perfect as well.

    Un des meilleurs hostels où je suis allée ! Super ambiance, super cadre, avec une piscine vue sur la plage Le restaurant de l’hostel est très bon et les prix raisonnables Tous les soirs il y a des buffet à volonté organisés avec un thème, et tout est vraiment bon Cependant, je n’ai pas vu une seule personne nettoyer sur les 3 jours où j’étais là. La douche était dans un état pitoyable avec le pommeau qui fuyait en continu et l’eau ne s’évacuait pas. Ambiance pataugeoire La piscine était relativement sale

    This place was ok. I wouldn't say it was the worst hostel I've been to, but it wasn't the best either. Stayed in the big dorm with 10 people in it, woke up to all my bags (and my buddies bags) that were put under the bed were soaked through. Luckily I had to do laundry anyways so I just took everything and got it taken care of at a local laundry service, but it was pretty unpleasant to wake up to all my stuff soaked through, including my backpack with some electronics on it. More to say, but...

    In my opinion driftwood is drifting towards a super party hostel without any diversity left. I don’t mind drinking and having fun but it was so much that people were vomiting al night and the pool was filled with water and beer.
