    AMAZING place!!! The second I walked in everyone smiled and said hi. The staffs willingness to help and friendliness makes such a happy atmosphere. The rooms were clean, bathrooms clean, location right across the street from the beach, and they hook you up at the surf shop and are so nice there too. And to top it all off I forgot my KOBO (E-reader) at the hostel so they mailed it to me at my next hostel in Scotland! The best hostel I have ever been too.

    So close to the beach you can check the surf from your dorm room window! Everyone at this hostel is super friendly and relaxed. Perfect place to spend a quiet few days at by the beach

    Incredible Hostel! The staff was incredibly welcoming! You gotta meet the owner! Absolutely chill guy with an incredible lovely attitude! Once you get in contact with these people, you’ll get taken along to bars, Cafés, sunset watching...amazing! The facilities were actually quite clean! Hostel breakfast is served, too. The only flaw is security as there are no lockers at all. Yet, the location for beach access and sunset watching is just prime!! great value for money? Absolutely!

    Great hostel, everyone is so friendly. Does seem like most are long termers so it sometimes was a bit hard to socialize but still had a great feel. Shower rooms were huge which was a nice change and beds comfy!

    Pretty basic hostel, not much in the area of amenities or extras, close the beach (which apparently if you want to surf there you need to go with a guide?). A cafe, restaurant, and bar all right across the street and all very good by the way.

    The only reason I booked this place was because it was advertised as having free parking. When we arrived there was no apparent parking for the hostel and when we asked about it the staff seemed to have no idea what we were talking about. They suggested we park on the road and 'it should be alright' however we then had to run the risk of getting a parking ticket! The WiFi was also poor and the showers were cold - overall not impressed
