We stayed here Thursday 22nd February - Sunday 25th Feb 2024. The hostel exceeded all our expectations. The rooms were cool (great aircon), clean and comfortable. It has a very safe feel about the place and we haven’t had to worry about leaving our stuff around. The hostel is insane value for money and the pool is stunning. The whole vibe/feel of the place is lovely and the staff are very friendly. The manager Mohamed is very helpful and will give great recommendations. :)

This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at. It’s perfectly located, minutes from the beach, calm, in walkable distance to all amenities needed. The rooms are clean and comfortable, have air conditioning + door locks. No matter what request, the staff made sure to organize everything from taxis, to sunset cruises, diving, scooter rentals, massages, and so on, always with a smile. The people running this hostel are really amazing and the service, food and drinks are great. I’ll be back!

Very nice pool and hangout spot, relaxed vibe. Owner organises lots of activities/tours but seemed annoyed when we said no. DO NOT DO YOUR WASHING THERE!! We got our washing back two days later, after the 10am check-out time, very mouldy and still wet. Now all our clothes stink and we are moving too frequently to do another wash. Even our bags smell now from the mould!!
