Staff were really friendly and place was clean. The hostel is only few minutes walk into town and they collected us at the bus stop free of charge! They offer free rental of bikes also. There is No bar but you can bring your own alcohol! Would def stay here again!

He is enough to make me and numerous others... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in a mixed 4 bed dorm. The positives: - double bed for price of single - hostel has beach access - quiet after 10.30 p.m. - easy to socialize - nice garden area - activities almost every night The negatives: - younger travellers, so a sort of party hostel. With that also came people... More

The staff at the hostel were friendly apart from the girl that picked us up from the bus stop. She was not there to greet us, never said a word to us the whole way and was really miserable. Location was good, near to the centre and had beach access. Spacious communal areas and activities in the hostel most nights.... More

This included 2 breakfasts, 2 dinners, 2 days of 2-3 hours of surfing, and 2 nights accommodation. Jamie was a fantastic host. He made coffee... More

I loved my stay at Backpackers inn at the beach - the only hostel actually on the beach! The staff are all amazing especially Nat who went out of her way to help with booking trips, generally looking after people who stay. She always had time to help and goes the extra mile. A really friendly and social hostel you... More

'We stayed here as a friend had stayed there before and recommended it. It was cheap, the staff were friendly, one of the cleanest places i have stayed out of most of the backpackers in the price range. Stayed there for one night then decided to stay there for three nights on our way back to Bribane as I loved... More
