    One of the best hostels! So nice staff and facilities are good. Pool and outside bar is so nice and you don’t really need even leave because you can get food from the bar and just chill by the pool! Super chill and fun vibe overall. Also very easy to go surfing.

    I really loved this hostel, the volunteers and staff were all so friendly and welcoming. The place was clean and there was a really nice homely atmosphere to the place. It is a little out of town but not too far to the restaurants and bars and it's quite nice staying in a residential area as opposed to in the town. I would def recommend having the BBQ if you are around for it as it's a great way to make friends and is good value for money.

    Very Good

    I only stayed one night. Unfortunately the superior 4 bed mixed dorm room that I booked was very small and cramped. Top bunk was closed entirely, except for where you can climb in. If you’re claustrophobic, I don’t recommend. No airconditioning made it also very very hot. There is a nice and relaxing vibe at this hostel, staff are friendly and willing to help with whatever you need.
