    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!

    An amazing stay, our room was clean and had fresh crisp linen. We had a breath taking view from our balcony looking over the harbour. We were given a great recommendation for dinner a short drive from the hostel which we really enjoyed..

    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.

    This is a beautiful building, set within walking distance to the centre. However, the dorm I stayed in was small, with no individual lights. Not divided into male and female,despite having dorms empty. Kitchen is basic. There were no facilities for food or drink. I arrived in the evening and could not even get a drink. There is no restaurant or bar and the vending machine was empty. One member of staff on reception was very helpful. `potential to be a great place but needs some TLC.

    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.

    This house is very nice and the staff are nice, but the WIFI could only be accessed in the reception area and was very poor if others were using it. There was only 2 sockets in the room that was for 4 residents. The seating in the main room was uncomfortable and there was no TV so its pretty bland in many ways. The hostel is located in a very dangerous area which I was not advised about. I was almost mugged in a nearby street, the area has history for violence which I was not advised of.

    DONT STAY! Hostel itself is nice in beutiful historical building. But the district is almost no go zone. Maybe it was nice district in past but not anymore. I got almost mugged 2 times during two days. And it is nothing interesting to see and do anyway. Choose Summerstrand district instead - it is beutiful and mainly safe there. Sorry owners, you did your best and I apperciate it, but I can not recommend it to other travellers.
