    An excellent atmosphere and vibe - great social opportunities. Lovely staff and wonderful garden spaces in woodland. (Only let down by the ‘traditional’ and typical grime in Indian guesthouse shower rooms). I loved it and would definitely stay again.

    The dormitory is amazing: you have beds on the roof with a mosquitonet and basic facilities. Within 15 minutes of walking, you're at the cliffs. The restaurant is amazing (fruit salad is about the best breakfast known to humankind) and the social hangout is as good as it gets.

    I stayed here a couple days, the staff are very accommodating and will help you with most things. The hostel has a lot of space for people to hang out, unfortunately I arrived in quite low season and pretty much had the place all to my self. It’s close enough to the beach but far enough away for some peace.

    This place is very near to cliff. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are OK. Dormitory lockers and toilet are not up to the mark and needs improvement. Overall, it was a good experience.
