A group of us stayed for a family wedding the owners were very friendly and accommodating to our needs. The location to the beach was great and the bus only a few meters from the hostel was an added bonus. The atmosphere at the hostel was every thing you would expect from a hostel meeting others from all around the world made for interesting travel stories in the common room in the evening. Pot luck dinners were also a hit.

I am sure that backpacker’s accommodation doesn’t mean that it can have low hygienic standard and ants in the bed. But this is exactly what I found this lodge. It is true that I met a lot of friendly and interesting travelers, but it is also true toilets were not clean and I found ants in the bed. Lodge is definitely not kept well and need more cleanness and organization (the place for big dust containers is definitely not near kitchen door, that guests are shocked because of smell in the morning)

Perhaps Backpackers International has a great potential (nice location, nice beach) but it needs more professional management.

Room Tip: Plantation view room

Friendly owners Bill and Anna run this place where most backpackers stay for a longer time. Every evening we especially enjoyed the atmosphere in the common room/terrace, were most guests of different ages spend there relaxing time at the hostel. The fruits of the land are on the tables for everyone to take, usually banana and paw paw. The beach is very close and this spot is not so bad compared to many other more buisy places. The double rooms are small, but good enough for a casual backpacker and not expensive. Hot showers at fixed moments on the day, but also the "cold" ones will do if you're on a tropical island.
