    The Sandrock Holiday Hostel is owned by a lovely couple who live in the home next door to meet your every need. I traveled with three other women and this was the first time three of us stayed in a hostel. From the moment we entered the driveway we were excited about staying here. The view is amazing, the owners were friendly and welcoming, the home was clean, cozy and safe. The surrounding area was just as beautiful as the view from our room. I highly recommend staying at this hostel.

    This is the most magnificent hostel. Rodney and Margaret have thought of everything. Would stay forever if I could. The place feels like home, the views are to die for and everyone there was great.

    Our stay at Sandrock hostel was magical. Rodney is a kind, friendly and considerate host. Our dorm looked out to amazing sea views with ever changing colours and sky. The hostel is deceptively larger than we would have thought. We felt right at home here. Each morning we took a few steps from the hostel to swim in the sea. The sun streaming into the big windows was hypnotic and therapeutic. It is a wonderful place to stay and we enjoyed every minute of it. Thanks Rodney.

    A great place to stay! This is probably the best Hostel I've stayed in so far. Very nice location right on the shore and lovely hosts. Things to be aware of: There was no breakfast included and payments must be made in cash.

    A wonderful welcome, a beautiful view and a great place to stay. I was there for 3 nights and would have liked to triple that, at least. Local pubs barely close, there's a small supermarket a couple of kms away and the walks in the area are stunning.

    Lovely place to relax, friendly and helpful staff, great views, comfy beds and very homely feel. Walk able distance to nearest shop, pub and restaurant but having a car would be a good idea.
