We made our booking for New Year over the phone weeks in advance and they only had the private room available. At $25 a night you would think it would be a decent stay......... Think again. The room is right behind the bar with walls as thin as rice paper. The bar opens from 6.30/7am till 2/3am = no sleep.... More

First I have to get the negative out the way, the Garden room is not the room to stay if you want to rest and sleep in the evenings. The music from the bar (which plays until midnight) is so loud in this room...because it is next to the bar. If you're fine with going to bed late then the... More

We stumbled across this place when we were staying next door. The bar staff were welcoming and friendly and we soon got to know them and the locals! The owners Aaron and Kat were the nicest couple and even helped my girlfriend to get me a surprise birthday cake which was really special and so appreciated. We ended up going... More

Amazing atmosphere for solo traveller. Great staff, friendly vibes. The dorm rooms were comfortable with a decent mattress and mozie net. Loved the food. Bathrooms are ok, but new ones are currently being built. Otres beach is a lovely place to chill. Thanks heaps 😄

I left "footprints" on otres 1 to come and stay at this gem of a hostel. I stayed in a room with a double bed which was suprisingly comfortable. We were welcomed with such a bunch of happy faces, and this crew seemed to know what they were doing. The food (although expensive for some, i heard) was incredible. And... More

The staff here was very friendly and helpful and the restaurant had some good food. We had booked a private room and it was equipped with an en-suite bathroom, fan, mosquito net and double bed. The only issue for us was that the room was located right behind the bar so you could hear the music and guests. It was... More

Thank you for your feedback, we read every review to better improve our home for the future. The room that you stayed in is behind the bar and when customers do stay in this room the music is turned off at 12pm to ensure that our guest can have a comfortable sleep during the night. Unfortunately we have no control... More

Went in here for one drink, ended up staying for a bunch of drinks and having a great time with the bartenders and the other guests. They have a cool drink selection such as Chai White Russians and a couple of infused rums. Lots of games and stuff to do, really chilled out vibe. If it's too late to enjoy... More

Stayed 3 nights here and have not met a better bunch of workers and staff anywhere else in my travels. Hostel is clean and utilises local workers where possible to give back to the community and ensure continuity. Location is perfect 50m from Otres beach and rooms are clean and made from local wood materials. Food is also special with... More

We stayed 5 nights and would highly recommend it to anyone heading down Otres way. Its a chilled out set up with some really great vibes. If you spot any Sri Lankan curries on the board, spend the extra dollar as its incredible, seriously I would go back just for the curry. The bungalows are comfortable and we slept really... More

Stayed here for a few nights in January 2014. It was such a perfect place for relaxation. The bungalows are cheap and the standard is decent. The people running WYWH were super friendly and helpful. I'll def stay here again if I go back to Otres beach some day!
