Really good hostel. Ended up staying here for a month. The hostel is really close to the beach. BBQ's are provided in the outdoor seating area. There is plenty of space in the kitchen and lounge. The dorm rooms are also spacious and airy. Free activities include kayaking and tennis, and discounts can be provided on other activities such as dolphin encounters. Honest advice is given on the activities. Thanks Brian, we had a great time.

Helpful staff, Lovely ensuite room with plenty of windows for fresh air. very nice cafe straight across the road.

The only inconvenience for us oldies was having to ask someone where the Reception Office is, and then having to climb a lot of outdoor steps to reach it. unfortunate after a long drive and carrying luggage.

Thank you for taking time to put in a review, from the main lodge to the office there are 6 steps. Four signs of 0.6 of a meter by .30 of a meter showing the way to the office, plus a sign which has lights in it 2meters by 1.25 meters on the office wall, which can been seen from across the road at the restruant, and also 3 meter by 1,75 meters on the deck above the office with lettering of 0.5 of a meter showing the office and a large orange arrow through that sign pointing out the office. So I am a tad surprised at your difficulty finding the office. however that aside I hope you enjoyed your stay and come again. regards bryan

Great hostels, though not part of the BBH group still offered discount to members. Free room upgrade when original room mistakenly given to another backpacker.
Great facilities, clean and easy to get to and central to everything.


Owner on hand all the time and friendly, highly recommend this hostels to all.
