This place had great reviews so was looking forward to it as a I am traveling solo. The staff weren't friendly at all. Had an over priced BBQ which was terrible. No one finished their plates. The actual menu of food was good. I stayed over the road in a 3 bed door and I expected to be in a...

Stayed here over New Years, 5 nights. The staff are very welcoming and the place is nice, right on the beach with a good atmosphere. The actual room is in a different building across the road. It is VERY minimal, bed, 2 pillows, 2 small micro fleece blankets and 2 small bedside tables. No towels. There are 3 shared showers/toilets....

Incredible ambience if what you are looking for is partying and being with people 24/7 but not the ideal place if you prefer a good rest. I was there during the Full Moon week and every night the bar of the hostel was full of people and travellers. (Tip: Individual rooms are way much better than dorms.)

Nice place to hang out with friends. They offer pre parties and take you to the ones for free. Not really clean. So pay attention if that bothers you. Also offer free breakfast on the full moon party days. Other places arrange activities on pre and after full moon party. That would be a nice plus for such a sociable...

I recently stayed here and was really impressed at first. Great common area, bar and right on the beach. Can't say enough about that. I was a little drained after few busy days and a couple nights of loud people in a previous hostel so I decided to get a private room. Definitely not worth it. First they are way...

We were initially only meant to stay here 2 nights but extended our stay another 3 nights! Great location, amazing social area, fabulous staff that are super fun and helpful, and good facilities. The food on offer was really tasty and the hostel also provided free tea and coffee. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms were clean. Couldn't recommend a better...

I stayed here for 8 days and can't believe how well priced this hostel is. It has beach access and a great common area for hanging out. Had a bit of a motorbike accident and the staff were so amazing at helping in any way they could. Dorms were standard. No lockers inside the rooms, but there were some just...

Pretty great party hostel we stayed in before the jungle/full moon party. Staff seemed to really enjoy each other including very fun kitchen and house keeping staff that would come down and take shots with guests at the very lively bar. Hostel looks out onto the beach with an awesome sunset view and they offer a decent breakfast/lunch (little expensive...
