    The community hostel is a one of a kind hostel, they are always ready to help with practical, surf or funny stuff. In the end of my stay it felt more like close friends i have had been visitting (one Big family). I can only recomend this place, they offer very much for a little price - shot out to the team the community hostel! From Luka and Chicha

    It feels odd to 'review' a place that so quickly and profoundly came to feel like my home and family. The whole crew at Community deserve massive praise for going above and beyond in providing a safe, fun and welcoming atmosphere for a diverse range of travellers. Only a short distance to some of the best surfing beaches in the region; great (&clean) facilities; a wealth of local knowledge on offer; every day a big smile. I was disappointed to leave and can't wait to get back!

    I was a bit skeptical at first when I read all the reviews about how good this place is but it’s even better than that. Not only is the staff very social and caring, the people staying here during my trip where also awesome. It’s very clean in the room and with enough space for luggage. The kitchen is big and well equipped. When I didn’t feel like going surfing, I just chilled in the backyard. Everything you want on a surf holiday is close by.

    Had a great time at Community Surf Hostel. Chilled atmosphere, friendly people, and staff really go above and beyond to make you feel welcome with communal breakfast, regular events and trips to the local bar. They were always happy to help out with anything I needed. Would definitely recommend!

    My friend and I had such a great time over there, the hosts and the people working are really nice. You can rent a board a little less expensive than the other places, however, having a car make it much easier, the city is all over up and down hills. The surf spots are at least 20min walk. The place and the ocean view are beautiful, I really recommend it !

    The hostel was nice and the staff too. Only thing was, I chose this hostels outside of the city in the hope of gettong a queit place. But the staff arranged parties during the week at the hostel with loud music playing until 1 o'clock. The guests came in and out into the doorm all the time with no respect of us that wanted to sleep...

    We were there only for a night, but rooms weren't that clean, beds weren't too confortable. Walls paper thin - we had a baby crying in the room next door the whole night... We loved that we could borrow things for the beach (umbrella, beach games). They team up with a local who gives lovely (and cheap!) massages on reservation - I strongly recommend.
