We stayed at On the Beach Backpackers when it was raining super hard for 2 days straight. So we became well-acquainted with the rooms and common areas. We really liked their set-up for the rooms. We stayed in a double room. They way they're set up is sort of like a small apartment. There was a triple room next door to ours that shared a lounge area, deck, bathroom, and a kitchen. So we never had more than 5 people there at one time. This hostel is about a 20 minute walk into town. But if the weather is good, you're literally right across the street from a beautiful beach. They have free kayaks to use, too. Cool place. We totally recommend it.
