    What a beautiful place to stay :) everything was just perfect. The people were so friendly, the food was outstanding, the climate is nice and warm, the waves were perfect for beginners, the vibes, baby turtles, the perfect sunsets from your hammock on the beach and the pool bar was always fun :) Definitely recommend The Driftwood Surfer!

    Nice hostel, friendly staff and really good food. Was under renovations while I was there so the pool wasn't open and was a little quiet but I can see that in high season when the pool is up and running this place would be great!

    Beautiful location and helpful friendly staff. Dorm room is one big room with 4 smaller rooms with toilets in the smaller rooms so that means your room can get quite busy. Yes the black sand does get everywhere and the place is messy from people coming and going to the beach but once you accept that it's fine. Plug sockets will electricute you if it rains and theres very few sockets. Food was great and large portions! Big drinking vibes. Surfboards rental system felt like a scam and was pricey

    Its ok, if you're a surfer there's plenty to do. Otherwise not so much. Food's great, staff are cool but its not the cleanest, beds are short, showers are salt water.
