    Loved this place, you cant beat the value you get. The location is prime, I couldnt have asked for better. Only thing that could be improved is the overall cleanliness and maybe to renovate the bathrooms.

    Staying here was great! The main areas and the bedrooms were kept really clean, and the people/ staff were all very friendly and easy to get along with to make friends! The only feedback would be the cleanliness of the bathrooms, I think could use some improvement. However the family meals and small details like hiding Easter eggs was really heart warming. I had SO much fun and met the best people which really made my stay at the beach bungalow totally worth it. I will definitely be going back!!

    Super fun place, mad value for cost. Only problem was a couple got hammered and accidentally passed out in my bed while I was was out at the bar. So I stole their bed. Wasn't the hostel's fault obviously.

    Amazing location, right on the beach. The hostel is colorful and has an extremely social atmosphere. Endless amounts to do - surf, volleyball, soccer, scooter, eat, drink. They do breakfast and dinner for the guests so this helps save travelers a lot of money. I would definitely stay here again

    Very Good

    The hostel is located right on the beach so a lot of surfers are always visiting. The deck is beautiful but it is also the place where every one hangs out so if you are in the 12 bed room, the noise might be too much for you to sleep at night. Bathrooms could have been cleaner and better maintained.

    The room smelled of marijuana. The staff does NOT enforce quiet hours, (loud til 130a.m) & there's one bathroom inside the 12 bed dorm that one person at a time could use. Outlets scarce and not available for each bed. Shower looks horrible. On the bright side your directly on the beach, they serve breakfast and dinner. Also have quite a few social events. Other than that for anyone who wishes to have peace and quiet while they sleep & a clean shower, Go ELSEWHERE!!!!

    The hostel was freezing, damp, and so smoky. There was hardly any room to keep your things. There were guests who did not respect quiet hours and the staff did nothing about it. We cancelled half our stay and went to another hostel. For the same price it was clean and very well-managed. The only positive thing about ITH is that it is right on the beach. If you are a smoker and it is warm, then you might not mind the things that bothered us. I wouldn’t stay here again even if it was free.
