    By far the best hostel I have EVER stayed in!! The staff are all lovely, helpful and efficient. The dorm rooms are amazing - spacious and cool with beds made daily. Atmosphere and food also really good! Can’t fault anything and would recommend to anyone considering Tamana :)

    Best hostel we’ve ever stayed at!! Extremely comfortable beds and great restaurant with sunset view. This is the best option for accommodations on the island. There are options for any budget, from dorm beds to private rooms to huge family sized rooms. The staff from top to bottom will make your time on nosy be special. Everyone speaks seemingly 2-3 languages (for us, English was key), and they gave us advice on how to get everywhere and what the fair prices are to do things. Amazing.

    HOW DO I GIVE 11/10!? This is by far the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Tamana means to be at home in the local language and that’s exactly what they have achieved . So fantastic to sit on the rooftop terrace and chill and watch the sunset. Beautiful new dorm rooms. Live music and open mic on the weekend. I tried to stay for 3 days and left after 3 weeks. Thank you to the whole team !!!

    I enjoyed the staff at Tamana. One of the staff took me out for a great night. The beds were comfortable and I enjoyed the fans that each bad had. How innovative!

    It's a good hostel, but I was bemused by some reviews rating it the best hostel ever. Staff were excellent and the place had a great vibe when there were lots of people there. The rooftop bar/restaurant has superb views and is a good place to hangout. Kitchen could be better equipped but there are many good restaurants around. Dorms were spacious. When the power was cut, which happened a few times, the fans couldn't operate and they quickly became very hot. I enjoyed my stay.
