    Best hostel here in town, short walk distance to the beach, great cheap offers for hiring surfboards and wetsuits, clean bathrooms, nice and quiet at night, close to all the popular bars and restaurants and staff is really helpful and friendly especially Rosy was my favorite at the reception! Cool vibes would def come back again!

    Excellent hostel. Great location and people. Rosie on reception is a diamond and I was only meant to stay 2 days however I'm still here almost a week later!

    I had a good stay there. The staff are very nice, it's clean and it's a great location. I hardly slept at all there though, as the room I was in is opposite the pub, so it was very noisy and the other guests wanted the windows open at night. Maybe it would be better to stay in a different room.

    Proximity to the beach and main street of town was KEY...couldn't ask for a better location. Very laid back vibe, there appeared to be a lot of long term workers there so I wouldn't say it was the most open and inclusive environment ever, but still a great time. Would recommend staying there, also one of the more cleaner 16 person dorm rooms I've been in for sure.

    Stayed in large dorm. Actually wasn't too bad. Lights went off at around 10pm. Most people were respectful and quiet. Apart from this one kiwi guy who was friendly but never stopped talking at anytime night or day. Like if you wanna have a full blown conversation go outside, no one else wants to know! Great location for the beach and you can rent bikes really cheaply to get to the supermarket. I love walking round or up the mount. It's gorgeous..🙂

    Very Good

    Super loud when I stayed till like 1:30am — signs around saying it is not a party hostel but that was not the case while I was there (a Tues night mind you). People were nice enough, and if you’re looking for a more rowdy hostel then this one was fun; if you’re looking to get a good nights sleep, maybe look somewhere else. Otherwise a good location, cheap board/bike rentals, and friendly, helpful staff 👍

    The girl that greeted us on arrival was nice and helpful. The dorm was fine could have had lockers to improve security. The kitchen was a mess with dirty dishes dumped everywhere and only 4 hobs which were all in use. It was busy but most the people there seemed to be long termers so not great if you want to meet people.

    Stayed on a weekend, awful mistake, I was in a room on the first floor and next to a window directly on the loud Main Street. Some of the long terms and others were partying directly outside the rooms window until 4:30 in the morning with no care for those trying to sleep in the 16 person dorm. Some stranger broke into our room at around 4:00 am and someone had to take him out in a choke hold & girl in the bed next to me had a bad case of bed bugs in her bed. Overall an awful stay!

    Location is the only thing good about this hostel. One of the regular guests was harassing us in our room which made us feel very uncomfortable. There was nowhere to keep any of our things and I even saw one of the other guests rummage through my bag. The bathroom was filthy and there aren’t enough showers.
