Arrived with my young family for lunch and wasn’t greeted very well the hostess kept telling the children not to touch anything which is understandable but didn’t seem to me like they were important such as cardboard boxes, condiments etc. My friend was chilling on the beach and went over to the owner and asked why he was cleaning the seaweed from the sea to no response. Then after my friend questioned the worker helping and the owner flipped and shouted “back awff” repeatedly (Aussie accent). Once this happened I didn’t feel welcome at all. Bit of a shame as it was a beautiful place and we found out they don’t take bookings from large companies such as booking.com and Agoda so obviously they rely on recommendations.

Lots of pros and cons for this one. Don’t get me wrong it’s a great little hostel. Location is epic right in the main drag close to restos and epic beach front great for a swim and watch the sunset. I stayed in both double room and a dorm. Both were spacious, clean and comfy. Bathrooms were also clean. Restaurant and drinks are good also and great deck to sit at at beach. Downside is the dorm is right next to staff room so woken up by someone watching YouTube very loud or kid watching tv. Double room right next to kitchen so again woken up by banging of pots and pans or a staff member just singing at 6am. Dorm room has a light right outside which doesn’t turn off so no sleep as so bright. No block out blinds, curtains are super annoying and blow on you all night. Double room has a clear part in roof so sunshine straight on your face in the morning. Basically if you don’t want to sleep in don’t sleep here. The hostel has no atmosphere. No one sitting at bar or chilling at night. There is some music but no one? Security is super tight. Guard with gun has to open door for you if you go out and very annoyed about it. Least you know your safe I guess.

If you want the best sunset spot in a white sand Beach with cold beer on your hand. This is the best restaurant for you, they serve awesome food too. I did not checked in with them as I was on the next resort to theirs, but their restaurant was my to go place, very accommodating and friendly staff, the Restaurant has a hippie and cool vibe, really underrated. There is also a veranda over looking the beach if you want a better view. I will be back here definitely to their restaurant and maybe stay on their place if they have private rooms already with Private CR. Some may say expensive, but I would say at par with Baha Bar and Monkey Business.
