We stayed for two nights and enjoyed the location near the shops, the service from the team was friendly and helpful, and we stayed in the private rooms where the facilities were everything we needed including very clean. We’d stay again.

I've stayed here 4 times now, 3 times as a solo female and once with a big group of friends over new years. 200m walk to the beach, walking distance to groceries and cafes, huge kitchen area, plenty of fridge and freezer space, welcoming staff, planned games/ theme nights, chill out areas are perfect if it's raining, cold air con in the rooms. $26.50 per night.

Great hostel, clean rooms and super nice staff. They make sure you won't feel alone. You can bring your own drinks and socializing is not a problem in this hostel. Also chill spots around for yourself. No pool, but the beach is only a few minutes walk! Respect for each other, after night time AND in the morning it's quiet which is a big plus. Definitely coming back here.🤙🏽

The staff go out of there way to help in every aspect. A very friendly vibe. Came for 1 night and ended up staying for 10 nights. Wish I could stay longer. 4 minute walk to the beach and a very central location to everything, what more could you want! Cheers, Oscar, Tommy and the crew for a memorable stay. See you next time.
