Went with friends on Spring Break. Great staff, excellent service, right on the beach, met awesome people! This has hostel style bunks. Nice deck on the boardwalk. Great beach location, especially for the price!

I checked into to banana bungalow and was greeted with a well layed out hostel in an excellent location, with views of the beach from left to right. The hostel was tidy, the other travellers were very friendly and everyone was keen to meet new people and socialise. However the staff I found were very unapproachable, rude and not outgoing...

It's hard to imagine a better location, literally right on the beach, makes it easy to start your day the right way, with a surf or a swim, especially if you find yourself nursing a hangover! I travelled here by myself and felt instantly welcome. There is always tons of fun to be had on the deck whether it's one... More

I've stayed here plenty of times. Always loved it. Everything you need is very very close by. The staff is the best and the place is very safe and clean. The rooms are clean. They have the best parties in the area, when they have them.

After travelling the entire west coast last summer, I can safely say this was my favourite destination. The trips on offer are so sick! I... More
