    Best hostel I have stayed in, for the price, location and friendly staff you can’t beat it. I ended up staying there twice and both times extending my stay even after having other hostels booked. The facilities are amazing, the whole hostel is clean and tidy and the staff were nothing but amazing. Helping book dive tours, knowing great locations to visit and just being super friendly. I would 100% recommending staying here, Thank you to the team for making it such a great place to stay. :)

    We enjoyed our stay in modern well equiped Hostel. The large cold room and modern clean kitchen made food prep easy and convenient. the room was airconditioned with a balcony looking towards the sea and the large swimming pool. It was a good base to the area and comfortable to stay in on a hot day Thanks for a great stay.

    I had a lovely stay at this Hostel. The staff were super friendly & helpful. I had a lovely quiet room overlooking the lagoon, which I ended up having to myself. The facilities were great, I used the gym daily, the kitchen is one of the nicest hostel kitchens I have used & the chilled area was lush. The beds are comfortable & rooms well air conditioned. The dorm bathrooms are so nice, it has more of a hotel feel. Would absolutely recommend. Great location to.

    A nice hostel to stay in, will be even better when the roadworks are done and it is more accessible. Had a bit of a weird experience when I was put in the same room as one of the other 6 people staying in the hostel at the time, and then had my roommate lock me out of the room. Apart from that, the staff are super nice and had good facilities.

    We stayed in a 4 bed room with ensuite. The facilities are great and modern. Location is absolutely perfect, although there is a construction so there are not places to park close by. We were only 2 at the room and seemed fair, but maybe for 4 beds is a bit small. Bathroom wasn't clean even considering the room was empty when we checked in. We made our check in with the Night manager, not the most motivated employee at all.
