I missed more plugs in the room (we were 3 with just 1 plug and didn't have adapter) and the wardrobe was a shame. We couldn't use it. During my shower was really cold because the wind came in, but I liked the hostel, the location, silence. Hope to come back one day.

I actually came here in May 2015 but have just been looking at photos and realised it deserved a review! I came here for a weekend whilst on a trip volunteering in a game reserve a couple of hours away. It was amazing! I had such a great weekend. The night life in the hostel was good, we went sand...

Spent many a weekend here and each time was great. The dorms are spacious and clean and the private rooms are really lovely with such a good view. The introductory tour was informative and was provided to keep you safe which was much appreciated. The food on site was very good if limited and the bar is a great place... More

I loved the vibe of this place! It's chilled, and at the same time, good for party. It's just in front of the beach, you have the most amazing views from the window of your room! They also provide surfing lessons, and the staff is great.
