    Loved staying here, staff were exceptionally friendly. Relaxing atmosphere with a great vibe. Of all the backpackers in the area, this was easily the best. Will be back very soon!

    One of the best hostels on the garden route- an absolute must stop and stay!! Amazing room with ocean views, 5min walk down the dunes to the beach and 10mins into town made it a great location! Woodfired Pizza everynight was unreal too! Staff very helpful with activity bookings. wish we could have stayed here longer - loved the chill surfer vibes. Thanks for a great stay!

    GREAT location with amazing beaches right outside. The room itself had a great balcony with stunning views. This honestly made the hostel so great for me. The beds were comfy and the staff was very lovely. Pizzas and gin and tonics were great too. All in all an amazing place. I only stayed one night so I can’t say much more but it was a little bit annoying when people checked in at 3am waking me up many times throughout the night. Other than that- will definitely stay here again!

    Great location on the hill overlooking the beach and ocean with magnificent views. Staff were friendly and helpful. Atmosphere was low key but that's due to COVID-19 as I was the only international tourist

    My friends and I loved the view from the Beach House dorms, but there were a few things we didn’t love. ‘Free WiFi’ isn’t free WiFi if it’s only an hour of free WiFi and then we have to pay. The bed marking system doesn’t work- they have tags they use to mark the beds that fly off when doors are open and leads to confusion when multiple people claim the same bed but suddenly none of the bed markers are there. Overall, a great location, staff was friendly, but I think they can improve.

    Great and relax place to be for a short time. Next to the nice beach. Comfortable bedroom and good share places. The only thing is that you can't find a lot of stuff to cook your food. Very beautiful view on its surroundings.
