I stayed here with my boyfriend and loved every minute here. We had stumbled upon Calypso by accident, having already had a booking at JJ's backpackers round the corner, but found no-one at reception there and no-one answering the phone...so it was Calypso's gain, and ours too!
It's a lovely spacious hostel with all the facilities you would ever want in your dream hostel -free wifi, clean toilets/kitchen, cheap $2 breakfast, pool, every night hosting events for free (we took part in beer-pong and a really unexpected chance to hold crocs, snakes and lizards!), plus drinks deals and dinner for $5!
Best of all you can have a party and then go back to your room and - NO NOISE! Completely soundproof, which is always something I weigh up when booking places: party VS sleep!
Lastly they offer a free airport transfer and a shuttle down to the marina for all the Reef trips, which is fantastic and all of the staff I met were super helpful and friendly. I wish we had stayed longer, but this hostel is fantastic!
