I was quite impressed with the Point. It’s further from town than the rest of the hostels, but this is a small price to pay for an almost exclusive bit of beach.
The dorms are all in the main building and sleep 8 people. These can get a little warm at night, so it’s worth trying to get one of the dorms on the end of the building, as these have better airflow. There are small security lockers for each bed, but these are only able to hold small rucksacks. It’s worth buying a mosquito net if you are going to be here for any length of time, as there are a lot of mosquitos in the area.
There are bathrooms on both floors, and these seem to be cleaned almost continuously. Showers are warm all of the time.
The bar and restaurant are both very good and reasonably priced (both much cheaper than the bars in town). The bar also has two happy hours, and various promotions, games etc.
There are quite a few long term backpackers who seem to stay here and work behind the bar. Some of the other reviews of this place seem to count this as a negative, but it really gives the bar a bit of atmosphere. All the staff are really friendly and well placed to give out advice on your next destination.
The pool is very nice and cleaned every few days. There is usually a game of beach volleyball going on in the late afternoon, that anyone is free to join in.
Wifi is reliable and available throughout the complex.
