    Really fun staff and vibe. Love the manager, who is so helpful, caring and fun. Lots of facilities - kitchen, loads of chill spots, yoga shala upstairs perfect for morning meditation and yoga. Good quality cheap food available from their cafe. Was welcomed by a family lunch on arrival which allowed me to feel at home straight away. Really clean. Super close to the main beach and the point break surf spot is a 10 min tuktuk away. Very central so naturally a busier part of the cliff. Loved it!!

    Amazing hostel, loved our stay here and would 100% stay here again. Atmosphere is great, met some wonderful people while staying here. There is a cafe so you can eat here if you choose, or there are local restaurants close by if you want something cheap. Hostel also offers yoga classes with a brilliant teacher. Great location close to the cliff and beach, and a surf school 3kms away at Koppil beach.

    Had a lovely stay here over the Christmas days, they organised a secret Santa and meal (they do meals every night I think). Got chatting to loads of fun people, the cliff and beach are only a 5 min walk away and there’s a general chilled atmosphere at the place. Highly recommend!

    For solo travellers looking to make friends it’s great, and location wise it’s very close to the beach as well as all the clifftop restaurants. However, that’s where the positives end for us. We stayed 5 nights and our room wasn’t cleaned once, we had to ask twice for our bin to be emptied. The door handle fell off in our hands when trying to unlock the door - we told staff about this but it was left like that for our stay. The bathroom was dirty when we arrived and the whole room is run down.
