stayed in basils longer than planned the town is small but steve and ray are friendly and very clued upabout the area and there is lots of outdoor activities ,hiking ,kayaking,cycling, and a good surf school,although the best beaches are a 5 min drive away which transport was provided for by the hostel there is another beach within walking distance wich we enjoyed bbq and chilling on,the hostel itself has a nice chilled vibe very clean , lots of seating and indoor bbq area, i was travelling alone but was made to feel very welcome and because of the range of accomodation i met lots of ppl not just backpackers
