    Elliot, Nicky, and Apple were all super helpful hosts. Buddy the dog had great vibes. They are all very relaxed and renting mopeds through the hostel is easy and cheap. They gave great recommendations and everyone staying at the hostel had great vibes.

    Elliot the owner is super helpful with everything to do with island from scooters to beaches to diving to roads to avoid etc. Location was great next to the supermarket and gym and the beach just a short scoot away. Really easy to meet lots of people and would recommend as a solo traveller. Beds comfy, showers warm, would stay again!

    Overall was a very nice hostel, opposite a supermarket which is ideal. The only thing is it's up a hill and if you don't have a bike, the hill is a killer. Owners are very friendly and helpful however there is one person that lives/works there that thinks he runs the place and is horrible. 10 minute walk from the beach is very ideal and they sort out trips for you such as snorkelling which I would definitely recommend. Think I would have enjoyed more with different people there.

    Elliott the owner is amazing and very welcoming. Hostel facilities are great, they help organise trips, you can rent scooters. Has a great communal area and super social, met some awesome people. Only negative for us was the “informal” events planner, he can be a bit rude and dismissive otherwise the hostel is great! I’d recommend
