Ended up at Calypso at the end of my east coast trip. It was definately the most friendly hostel that I stayed in. The staff were always keen for a chat. The place has a reggae vibe going on and a nice layout with all the social areas in one place (bar, kitchen, pool). Which meant that you can make friends easily. I ended up staying much longer than I intended. if you are prepared to compromise a little on location (however the free bus takes you to town or 15mins walk). You can enjoy a real gem of a backpackers. I have recommended Calypso to many of the backpackers that I have met.
