I stayed here for 16 nights earlier this year and really didn't want to leave. I have never had so much fun at a hostel before.
All the staff there- Jamie, David, and Erin, as well as the owners Paul and Cath were incredibly friendly and helpful. They would not just help out with everything the guests needed, but also hang out afterwards- all amazing people!!
The atmosphere created at Aussitel is all thanks to the staff who go out of their way to hold games nights, challenges nights, and food nights (really cheap)- all of which would get everyone in the hostel together! Definitely the most social and fun hostel I've ever been to!
The hostel provided soooo many free activities (including Kayaking, Canoeing, Body Boarding, Surfing, Paddle Boarding, Fishing, and Snorkeling)... They not only hire the stuff out for free but actually take groups out for activities each day and the staff get really involved..!! I also thought that because all this was free, that the equipment would be run down, but it was all in reallllly good condition!
The place was kept really clean, and had a reasonably big kitchen as well.
There were movies available for guests to watch as well.
Oh and the free internet was a massssssssssssive perk as well
You definitely get your moneys worth at this place, I cant recommend this place enough!!
Only a 10 minute walk from the beach, but a little bit far from the supermarket (15 minute walk)
Missing the Aussitel crew very much!
