The room we chose are the ones with 20 people around you but know what? It was incredibly clean and spacious for a 20 pax backpackers standard. Especially the bathroom, they are cleaned everyday and it was always clean and hairless when I'm using it during late night(means that everyone should have done their washing).Beds are fairly good and you...

Stayed here a few times over the years, great thing is it's the same place every time! Staff are great, always fun stuff and activities going on. Little bar on site is tops. Only down side is the beds are a little old and the place could do with a through spring cleaning. That being said I will still stay... More

Stayed here two nights. V Good location. Could afford a smaller dorm but wanted to experience the fun of a 20 bed mixed dorm- there aren't many of those around. I slept surprisingly well except for being woken up by a couple doing the unmentionable!! (Well I suppose I 'asked' for it by staying in a big dorm!). Seriously?! I... More

The hostel is not very clean, however the staff is friendly and they give good advise on where to go. The hostel is situated on walking distance of the beach, bars and shops. Its a 5-10 minute walk. Nice open place to meet other travelers, and with a swimming pool. The kitchen is oke, but it needs new pans, stoves... More

Loved this place! We ended up staying for about 3 months. Best atmosphere, plenty of outdoor space, swimming pools and BBQ :) Only a couple min walk to the beach and clubs. Dorm rooms with ensuite was great, recommend the 4 bed dorms. Really friendly staff, great people always there to help and make friends with. Clean for a hostel... More

Was staying here back in January and really enjoyed myself so made it a point to come back. Fun place, nice to lounge out by the pool or take a short walk to the beach. Close to woolys and cavil ave. Awesome staff, willing to help however they can.

I stayed in this hostel first alone and then with my partner. After staying at some bad hostels this has been a breath of fresh air, the place is run very professionally and looks stunning. They have been flexible to my needs, my girlfriend is extremely picky when it comes to rooms and hostels but she loved this place too.... More
