    I cannot speak highly enough about my experience here! Samantha, the manager, holds a wealth of information about the area and history. Do yourself a favor and buy her a bottle of wine and just soak up all of the fascinating conversation. I was in the area for an endurance race and all of the staff there were incredibly hospitable, supportive and accommodating from start to finish. Not a place for a superficial stay if you're receptive to more, I found it overall very moving and worthwhile!

    Spend one night here due to the Baz bus transfer, although I arrived very late the staff was very helpful and nice. The house is beautiful and there were many chill spots.

    Staff are lovely especially Sue and Sam, they are very friendly and accomodating. There is a lovely atmosphere here and a wide range of rooms available from single rooms with comfortable double beds to shared dorms and family rooms. It is self catering with a clean and organised kitchen and they offer a cooked breakfast for a small fee. Alcohol is for sale from the reception as well as soft drinks. All the bathroom facilities are well maintained and the showers are exceptional.

    The Island Vibe hostel is a good hostel. The rooms are nice and the common areas are pretty good as well. There is no breakfast included, but they have a couple of good options you can purchase. WiFi cut out every once in a while and the location of the hostel is not the best. Other than that I had a great stay.

    Really nice house but for a new hostel we were a bit surprised that there were only 2 plugs in our 6 bed dorm with no lockers. Great bathroom but the kitchen is really small, we wonder how this will work out when hostel will be full.

    Ok hostel, nice building but it is definitely not purpose built for being a hostel. Small kitchen, and I was in a dorm that only had one plug outlet for all sharers which needs to get addressed. Staff were helpful.

    The manager is super nice and helpful. Re: cleanliness I watched one of the ppl cleaning drink out of a glass and then put it in drying rack w/out washing it which doesn’t inspire confidence. There were a bunch of ppl staying for a training program who made a lot of noise at 5am (though staff said they had already been asked not to) - atmosphere might be better in summer backpacker season. Kitchen is disconnected and narrow, only one toilet. Near bus station but not in a great area otherwise.

    No lockers or key for the room but nothing was stolen. Staff were friendly. Kitchen is small and difficult to cook with current facilities. Storage space in kitchen was also small. Breakfast was expensive. Carpet smelled in the room. Only one socket in the dorm. Wifi was only available in the reception too so it was difficult to plan the trip while relaxing in the room after a long trip. Toilet and showers were outside which was inconvenient when at night.
