Surf N Sun Beachside Backpackers
Reviewed February 8, 2008

Had an amazing time at this hostel. We booked to stay in a double, and were put into an apartment with a girl who worked on the tour desk. The flat was fantastic, had a large tv, huge sofa's, bath, and fitted kitchen. We were a 1 minute (if that) walk away from the main hostel.

The hostel is self was also good. The kitchen was large enough for a few people to be cooking at the same time. Front desk staff very helpful. TV room was large and comfy, with free DVD's. The pool was excellent, very clean.

Overall had a great time at Surf N Sun, would highly recommend it. The price was also very reasonable, and the location fantastic.
