Great hostel. It's clean, the beds are comfy, and you feel like home. They have a very social living room and big kitchen. The bar is not open every day, but who needs it when there's the "honesty bar" (self service in the fridge), I loved the concept! Furthermore, the owners are really kind and the volunteers who work there... More

Only had one night but no complaints! Quiet rooms. We were downstairs and couldn't hear anyone upstairs. Good TV room upstairs and great garden for hanging out. Love the dog! Tamara was very friendly.

Its easy to find people to hang out with so I recommend it to solo travelers as well as groups. It's close to supertubes, supermarkets, beach and the... More

When I think of a pack packer's, I think of a place which create a excellent vibe to strangers at a unfamiliar place. A place where you can feel at ease - a home away from home. Hard Rock Backpackers was exactly that - on arrival, I met the most awesome people, which made me feel as if we've known... More
