          Very quiet, comfy, large spacious rooms. Good kitchen with everything you need and clean bathrooms. Good Wifi. The staff on reception are very helpful. 5 mins from the beach and the Greyhound Coach stop.

          Unfortunately Absolute backpackers wasn't the 'resort disguised as a hostel' as it claims to be. We had a 4 bed room for 3 people which was nice. However, we had no air con in our room, just a fan that didn't help at all. We...More
