Genuinely one of the best experiences I've had and the highlight of our travels. Can't praise the staff enough especially Greg and Ailsa they went out of their way to make our time there as fun as it could be. If you're thinking about doing Castaway definitely do it!

The castaway trip was easily the best time of my life. This was mainly due to the incredible staff who made my trip absolutely unforgettable. A special mention to Ailsa and Greg, who truly went out of their way to make sure everyone was having fun, and staying safe. 10/10 would recommend to anyone and everyone! Brock Brock

Even though they highly encourage drinking you still get to do everything you want. I spent the first day renting a kayak and crusing around. The stars at night are just purely incredible.... More

I travelled here with my GF. We messed our dates up and arrived a day late but they (Vietnam backpackers Downtown hostel hanoi) were more then happy just to move us onto the next day at no additional expense. We had tour leaders Tate, Greg, Vic and Natalie and they were all amazing and know how to get the party... More

I did the castaway through Vietnam backpackers and what an experience it was.The views alone are worth the money but for me the crew and reps made it. The island is paradise, the booze cruise is crazy and the overall atmosphere was priceless. Id like to say a big thank you to Greg who made my trip unforgettable, that guy... More

Greg was our party guide for the weekend and I had an amazing time. Met a whole bunch of people who are now good friends. You won't ever regret going. Just watch the sharp coral! 😎👍
