You should check other sites for AirBNB or before going here but if you have no choice then stay here for Dolphin watching. You only need 1 night as feeding is over by 8:45 latest and then you can walk back or grab a lift off someone else there. This place is run down and not looked after. You won’t sleep well and the kitchen is terrible. The staff were very nice friendly and helpful though. I did get my own room as not very busy. Worth it if you love dolphins!

The backpackers is above the sleepy lagoon hotel and part of the same business. Was checked in by the friendly bar staff. Toilet and shower facilities were clean and adequate. Kitchen and dining area was very small, though there were very few guests so it wasn't an issue. I had my 4 bed dorm to myself, the beds were neatly made with clean white linen. However, the room was really hot, and there was some kind of engine noise outside at night. Not much to do in TCB except feed the dolphins.
