  • 8.0.Very Good

    The hostel location is great, with a very nice patio and sea views. Bus stop at the front and stores, gym, restaurants at walking distance. Everything was very clean. To improve: WiFi is only available by reception desk and there’s a kitchen but it could use more/new kitchenware.

  • 2.0.Poor

    This is the worst accommodation I have ever had. It is substandard by any measure. The toilet barely flushes, the bathtub is clogged. There is no shower, only a hand-held piece on the tub, but there is also no shower curtain so if you use the hand-held piece you spray the whole bathroom. The lighting in the bathroom is inadequate. The room itself is dark, dingy and depressing. It is on the ground floor and gives onto busy West Bay Street. It is furnished with cheap, beat up furniture. The bed is uncomfortable and you can feel the springs. There is a ductless air conditioning unit above the bed which is so noisy with a clinking metallic sound that you can’t use it and even if you could it would blow right on you which would not be comfortable. There is also a ceiling fan with a bare light bulb which is equally noisy and you can’t leave the window open because there is no screen and it is on the ground floor so you don’t know what might crawl in. Besides there is too much traffic noise. For all this they charge $US170/night. They also insist on putting a wrist band on you when you check in as if you were in hospital.

    Wow the view of the sea is so amazing from everywhere, you get to have access to the beach ( less then 2 minutes walk)

  • 6.0.Good

    Excellent service from the staff. Bunk was clean and comfortable. Chef and front desk was very nice. Location was good with multiple stores nearby. Overall good experience but it would’ve been nice to have better signage at the entrance. I was dropped off by taxi from airport and once the driver left it was confusing as to where to go. It was hot and I was tired and alone and couldn’t find the entrance. Turns out entrance is tucked away behind a wall and up the stairs which I only realized after circling the building and walking along the shoulder of the road with my luggage. Initial experience was not good but I can see that the property is well maintained and caters well to all guests. Would give 7/10 instead of 10/10 just because of the confusion as to where the entrance was.

    I loved that it was right on the beach and right across the street from the gym! Location is amazing! Staff is very nice especially Helen who works the front desk. I love that there is a chef on site for the days that I do not want to cook! You can also do your laundry at this location for a small fee which is an additional bonus!!!

    Great beautiful place with lots of room. Ocean view with hammocks and pools. There’s patty’s most nights in the main area that I enjoyed with other backpackers. I’d pick this place over the hotels

    I fell in love with this hostel. As someone who stays at hostels often, I can say this one is top notch. It is very clean, the staff are helpful and friendly and they really help you get the best out of your trip. I’m not overly happy that they have pet pigs that are locked up instead of walking around and that the only time they are out is when the tourists pay $50 to swim with them. But this is just made because I’m a huge animal lover. I would have also loved to see vegan breakfast options. The food was phenomenal though...

  • 4.0.Fair

    This is the most disappointing place I have ever stayed at. Apart from the facelift the hostel could use (ex. mould on the shower curtains and in the bathroom, not sure when the pools were cleaned last, general maintenance) the staff we dealt with were apathetic, unorganized and not helpful (it was difficult to get a straight answer from them about anything). Good location and you can meet some cool people but the staff and all the issues just killed the vibe for me. I would not recommend. Some examples of issues we ran into: -I booked 2 beds in a mixed dorm room and the lady at the front desk told me I booked them in an all female room. She told me that the system was having issues and next time I should make sure it was put into the system properly... She then turned to another employee and told them that they need to pay more attention as they booked our room wrong in the system. -We bought tickets for dinner. We were told to come between 630 and 8. We got there at 715 and chef told us dinner is done and to come back the next night. The next day we asked what is on the menu and got told that chef is not cooking dinner that night... -We got charged an extra $50 US to upgrade to a single room on top of what we already paid plus the price difference of the 2 rooms. We were put in a mildewy basement. Not even AC remote or soap dispenser worked. -Bring your own lock though they say you can rent/purchase one for $10. They either don't have them or they don't work.

    There was no running water for 2 days. It was overbooked and people were literally fighting over beds. People were sleeping in common areas on the couches.
