Overall good stay, I would recommend putting lockers in the room. Staff were nice and good location. Clean kicthen and TV room, only the duvet was smelly.

Good stay, would recommend, clean hostel and great breakfast and BBQ night! Loads of hot dogs and cheese! Staff form pizza place used kicthen at peak times, meaning not alot of room to cook, constantly used microwave. Not alot of showers and toilets, also cleaned at odd times. There was a moody smell in the room and lower bathroom. Happy travels were very helpful!

Nice place to stay. The dorm was clean and good shower but little so not alot of spaces for bags. The staff were hit and miss the guys were alot more nicer and helpful! There a sign on the door saying they rent you car, when asking at the desk the guys said he'll help us, then the women said they dont have a relationship with them so can't help. The kicthen wasnt clean where u store food and deposit for plates. The onsite animal walk is really good, nice relaxing hostel. No lockers in rooms

Overall I thought this hostel was over priced and nothing to make it stand out as a flashpackers. It was out the way form shops etc, they run a shuttle bus at random times and are persistent you walk rather than use it. The pool very small aswell as the rooms, the breakfast the standard toast and ceral, with one toaster, the hostel was very clean, lockers in the room but when checking out you leave the bags by the door.

Overall an ok stay, shower were good, only WiFi in common areas, but worked well. Only a cotton blanket for the beds and you had to pay a 5 dollar deposit for cups and plates, meaning had to keep going back and forth to the room. Kicthen was grimmy with 1 microwave and no Tim opener. Location wasn't great about 20 min walk to town but out the way. The coles express is a petrol station not alot there. Tea and coffee at reception that closes at 7pm so can't have any after that. Nosies beds.

Really liked this hostel! Clean, great staff and modern room, would definitely stay again and recommend. They had live music playing on pizza night and the night after. The beds were comfy with lights and plugs and the shower were powerful and hot. They had a regular shuttle into town and surf boards to use for free! Definitely one of my favourite stays!

Wouldn't stay here again, the hostel to small for the amount of people they have. The kicthen a nightmare to cook in as it's not big enough and not enough table space to eat, always dirty cups and plates. Our air con was loud through out the night. WiFi was good, location ok but still quite a walk to main attraction. The breakfast was good but in happy travels so expect to be sold something as soon as you get there.

Unfortunately we couldn't get internet in the room, shower turned constantly on and of while in it, music played really loud till about two in the morning. If your looking for a party hostel this is your place, they have alot going on in the evening, live music, pub crawls, football etc but the main things for me is shower, internet and sleep and I wouldn't recommend for that.

Overall good stay, the staff were really friendly and was so beautiful and peaceful. The food was small portion and I would say over priced, I would suggest more variety for main meals. Hostelworld was misleading, we thought we had a modern bunglow so we're happy to pay more, however had a wodden one with alot of big holes, they only show 2 types of rooms on the website. It was very peaceful and right on the beach.

A hostel I'd definitely recommend, very organized and the staff are great. There was building work at the time so they changed our room for us. We had a private room they cleaned whenever you asked, they also provide towels u could change whenever for a clean one. There menu great with massive sizes and good prices! If you don't stay definitely come and try there food!!

Best hotel I've ever stayed in! The staff were amazing and so friendly! They sorted tours for us and even going to a school! They gave us a free traditional cambodian meal before leaving as we booked so long! Which was so yummy and great to try some food we hadn't! The rooms were clean and such comfy beds! The pool was great and the breakfast fantastic! Wish I didn't have to leave! Would highly recommend! The staff are amazing here and really make your stay!

The hostel was very dirty, the bed do not get changed, mould on pillows, found toe nails in my bed when arrived. There is mould growing on toilet walls, they do not sweep or clean the dorms. The breakfast is very slow and you don't always get what you order. We booked online as a group and were told we had to stay In separate dorms, later we got put in a dorm together and there were spare beds in there the whole stay. No free yoga as advertised and no kicthen facilities.

Loved our stay here, the staff were really friendly and helpful and it was really clean with nice showers. In a nice location that I felt safe and relaxed however quite far form the town, about 25 mins drive but if don't have a car it start adding up in cost, there a public bus however takes a good hour to get there. Great cafe onsite that was cheap and good, but sadly closes every day at 12. They also close the lounge and kitchen of at ten meaning not much to do after.

My favourite place I stayed in south Africa. The staff were great, so helpful. We stayed during the surf competition and the hostel was fully booked but still enough room and didn't feel packed. There a great coffee shop on site, and was very clean. The location was good, we booked a dorm room and due to a big group booking they up graded us to a private room for no extra charge. It was a very relax with a chilled atmosphere​ and they had movie and bands on some nights.

This hostel was shocking, id never stay here or recommend it, it was so dirty, the bedding was stained, nothing in the kicthen was clean, the fridge had moodly spills, the bathroom was thick with grim, staff weren't friendly or helpful. They have a shuttle at 9 to the town and pick up at 3 however the town is very small so nothing to fill 6 hours with. We think we saw the owners however they didn't say a word to us although we wud say hi. Very cold and no extra blanket although we ask.

Good stay overall, the staff were friendly and I liked the location as it was a short walk to the waterfront. They had braai on Saturday which was great way to meet people and a bar open every night downstairs, though didn't destribe you if u went to bed early. My only complain would be the deposit we put down wasn't taken of as they said it didn't go to them so ended up paying £20 more, which we weren't told about untill we got there.
