    My girlfriend and I stayed here for four nights on a visa-run from Bali in early April 2018 and had a superb time. Each of the diving, accommodation and restaurant (Cast Away Bar) was awesome.

    Loved my stay at Timor Backpackers! I booked a twin share room and was SO pleasantly surprised to be welcomed to what looked like a villa next to a pool. The whole self contained apartment felt almost like a resort, the staff were accommodating and very friendly and the vicinity to such good food and drink options at Castaways Bar was an added bonus. Will definitely go back.

    A well located hostel on the beachfront. It’s a little hard to find and you need to go to the dive centre reception to check in. We enjoyed our stay and met some friendly travelers. However, the staff aren’t knowledgeable about tours and advice was poor on what to do on the island. They seemed to be more helpful if you booked a dive course with them. There’s a good restaurant above which does good food and has a happy hour. Also close to a supermarket, really good coffee shop & ATM. Recommended

    Quite disappointing, specially because of the staff. Instructions said to go to Cast away bar, once we got there no one knew about a Hostel. It turns out it was downstairs. Check in was just not good, the Hostel is mixed with a diving school and we got the impression they only really cared about guests who wanted to go diving. The staff was not friendly and really didn’t care much to help us. They didn’t even know were we could buy a simcard. Check out was a mess. Room was ok, not very clean.

    As Backpacking in Timor Leste is young, don't expect the best hostel experience you have ever had. Timor Backpackers will work as a stoping point on your way to Atauro Island, so I wouldn't stay longer then you need to. The place is clean and has everything you would need. The staff at reception could use some customer service training, they are not helpful at all in regards to suggestions outside the hostel. The bar could use with some music. Although in saying all this I would stay here again
