Echo Beach Backpackers is a nice little hostel that emanates a relaxed atmosphere. The bar area has a funky design, the Pad Thai here is lovely (had around 3 a day) and the rooms are your standard dorm quality (nice beds).
However, the locker situation outside our room was more like a giant game of Tetris than quality designed storage space. EVERY morning the lockers would be somewhere else, either lying down, upside down etc etc. This was due to the toilets being constantly broke. (The lockers were used to block the door off to those who didn't care about using a broken toilet).
Nice hostel with a good sized beach out the back however, please please please invest in some working toilets
