I stayed in October 2012 for 15 days.
Tofo Beach Backpackers is a very nice and clean setup with the choice of private rooms with bathroom, rooms without bathrooms and 4 dormitories. The prices are good considering the accommodation is in a holiday resort and they cater for foreigners.
The accommodation is kept clean and tidy, the two communal toilets/shower rooms were always kept clean and in working order, they have an outside communal reasonably equipped kitchen including a freezer for stocking food (no fridge) outside tables and chairs with sun shades are available.
The reception area is more of a private owners lounge at times and it would make a difference to see some more professionalism.
Tony who runs the TBB is a really nice guy and I thank him for his hospitality as I do the owner what a fantastic LADY ! If the TBB were to be run by her it would defiantly be the tops!
The young girl who I think also runs the TBB is the most unprofessional staff I have ever come across! bad attitude always in a mood and completely ignores guests even when greeted (what a shame)
As constructive criticism I would point out the following:
Please respect guests staying in the dorms by knocking on the door before showing the dorms to potential clients or when entering to read the electrical meter. Just opening the door is not nice.
I am a heavy man and the sponge matters is so uncomfortable, proper bed mattress would make such a difference. (other resorts nearby have proper mattresses for the same daily rate)
Tony dont share the couch with your girlfriend and watch TV (or sleep), clients may not feel comfortable with that and tend use your reception services.
You have a nice dog but he uses the reception area more than the clients.
All in all I truly liked staying at the TBB and will highly recommend it .
PS! To the owner ! Thank you so , so much for your sincere friendship, I would have stayed or 15 more days if you were at the TBB more often.
