The hostel is more then any expectation that bagpacker can have; clean, smells good, air con + fan, great food and the BEST staff ever. Husain, Saha, Monday and Sunday are the coolest people you are going to meet, so kind and nice!! They will help you to arrange attractions all over beautiful Maldives !!! Including great food and drinks!... More

We originally booked four rooms, but for reasons unknown to us initially three rooms were moved to a new guesthouse adjacent and the fourth room moved the following day. This guesthouse is located as close to the harbor as possible. The rooms are very clean, simple, and comfortable. All dealings were still conducted with Dhonvelli view, and the management was...

We enjoyed our stay very much from Sep.5 to Sep 10 for 5 nights. My big family took part in some wonderful tours and we like them. The rooms are clean and the food is good. My English is not good enough though the housekeeper helped us a lot for the exploration. I will recommend the nice cosy place for... More

One of the few hotels on the public island of Maafuushi. Best price! You can go around the island in 30-45 mins, so location of hotel is not very important. 2 mins from harbor, 5-7 mins to beach. Super breakfasts! But be prepared to have fight with flies from time to time, as most tables are outside. Small clean rooms.... More

A good location directly on the beach, cosy place on the beach, they have also a terrace with sea view. We visited the place twice, but the food was nothing special. Not spicy, not bad and not good, average, just this kind of experience that you will not warmly recommend.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a great time. The hotel is situated near the beach which offered spectacular view. The food including the complimentary maldivian breakfast was awesome. The staff was friendly and gave us our peace especially when you need it. I will recommend this place to everyone.
