    Unreal hostel! Cannot recommend enough!! Booked for 2 nights and ended up staying over a week. Basic rooms and facilities but the vibes make this place amazing! The BEST guys run this place, and make the best coffee and pancakes! They took the best care of us, plenty of opportunity to surf, party or chill depending on your vibe. Jungle bbq was epic! 100% will be back 😍😍

    It's a fantastic hostel with a lovely cafe attached to it (Try the Pancake). The rooms are spacious and clean and the hangmats are great to chill during the midday when it gets too hot. Ask for a fan tho or book A/C room as it was very hot in the room.

    Good restaurant and rooms. Not the best communication between staff as we’d asked to extend our stay and the message hadn’t been passed on. Great location though, walking distance from everywhere.

    Not a fun hostel. There’s no social atmosphere there. If you want to meet people, don’t stay here. The beds are very uncomfortable as well.
