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.

I don't usually write reviews and stuff but this place is my favourite hostel of all time, not only the place itself but the location is mind blowing, situated right on the beach front . 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

This is a party hostel and does exactly what it says on the tin and the rooms are basic but clean. The overall decor is creative, bright and sets the mood! Although this is a party hostel it is run well by a great team; who make every effort to make your stay a good one. So despite everyone having... More

Really fun spot to meet travellers and party, plus location is amazing! If you're up for an adventure and socializing, do it! Otherwise... a bit rough. Dirty, unfriendly staff (except manager who finally arrived and was really helpful) and overpriced for what you get. Great for young travelers looking for a good time. We came at the end of a...

Myself and two other girls stayed here lasted summer. On arrival we were excited about staying in a California. On arrival we were greeted by a male receptionist who basically expressed that he didn't want us staying here because we were a certain nationality and who also became increasingly more rude as our check in session progressed. My friend had... More

I was travelling solo and this was the Best hostel I have been too! Awesome location with awesome staff. Because the rooms are smaller, and there is a beautiful deck looking out to the ocean, you'll find yourself making more friends because of the common meeting area. Drinking nights were held on the deck and super fun, the staff get... More

Firstly, let me just say that I overall I had a great time here...met some great people, the deck parties are ace, the location is stunning...but the attitude from a couple if the staff stinks! It doesn't matter whether you're paying $25 a night or $250 a night, make us feel welcome please and don't talk to guests like they're... More
