    As it was off-season, it was really quiet here, but I had a great time. The staff were really accomodating, and my first ever surf lesson with the owner was brilliant - great day at the beach with the dogs and other volunteers, with a lift there and back. It's super far out but I didn't mind, as the shop next door was well stocked and the hostel is a really nice place to hang out - super clean and a perfect vibe for chilling in the hammock with a beer. Overall would definitely recommend!

    A long way from the sea. Staff helpful. Pool good but never saw the filters operating. Dogs fun but dog mess poolside. Short staffed I think. Too much work for 1 guy. Shop nearby ok but limited. Kitchen untidy. Typical surfcamp atmosphere. Whole thing very casual and laid back. Reasonable value for money. Ok place for a night or two.

    Be prepared for the owner. He is a very nice and very eccentric person who can be overwhelmingly welcoming. Plus the location can be intimidating.

    At night there were big parties of people who don't even stay at the hostel, one girl got her money stolen, there weren't any surf classes. Everything seemed fairly clean, but we got bedbugs from the beds. Overall atmosphere was terrible when we got there, people were leaving early because of the unavailable surf classes.
