    We had a great experience. I booked last minute without really researching the place and it turned into a great surprise. Beautiful location and really unique rooms. We stayed in the Railway Carriage. Bit rundown but expected. Each bed was supplied with a hot water bottle and room heater. I think next time I will try a Tipi for fun, or the mud hut. I never met any staff. The key was left at the door with our names and the Yoga teacher helped us complete our payments. Very trusting. Great spot.

    Awesome hostel!! Such beautiful views, staff are friendly, and it’s cleaned regularly. It is quite far out of town especially if you don’t have a car but for me that was a great thing as it was super quiet.

    Really nice vibe in this place. Very basic accommodation in disused rail cabins, but the mattresses are comfy so you get a decent nights sleep. Well equipped kitchen, nice communal areas and the space at the front overlooking the bay is amazing. The restaurant when it opens on the weekend is superb if you like plant based food. Liked it enough that I am coming back here in Feb.

    Would be a really nice place to stay in the summer but it's not ideal for a cold, windy, rainy night in winter.
