The backpackers is much the same as most backpackers really, dorms and some doubles and it's reasonably priced. There were no hot showers in our dorm room but it's so hot all the time you welcome it and it's refreshing. The dive resort is run by the people that live in the village around it and all of the staff and people are lovely, they're really friendly and want your stay to be the best it can. The atmosphere at night in the bar is always good, and something goes on every night.
I did a scuba course there and it was fantastic, Pete was my instructor, he was nice guy and easy to get on with and made it easy to enjoy the course and the diving for a beginner. The range of wildlife around mana island is fantastic too with some phenomenal dive sites. Its an incredible place and would highly recommend it to backpackers and holiday makers alike
