A large social hostel for backpackers, solo travelers, and groups
Dorm Bed: $21.69
This large hostel offers a huge number of great amenities for backpackers and budget travelers. Dorms are available at great prices, and the facilities are modern and mostly clean.
Their location in the middle of town is also good, as they are close to the bus lines, the main road, and walking distance to the beach.
Amenities include free Wi-Fi, free surfboards, free bike rental, free car parking, laundry, a communal kitchen, BBQ, games, and more.
The spacious common areas are what set this hostel apart, as they provide the guests ample opportunity to meet each other, plan the day's activities, and make new friends. Large dining room tables make meals very social, as does the large outdoor terrace area with more tables and a BBQ. They also offer activities such as table tennis and video games. A separate TV viewing room is available for movies and shows.
Reviews from previous guests give this hostel high marks for the facilities, but mixed reviews for the behavior of larger groups of guests. While some guests are looking to relax, others might be keen to party, and in a hostel this size, there should be room for everyone, especially with bars and nightlife nearby.
The friendly staff can help with any advice or activities that are needed, such as booking tours or activities, finding places in town, or anything else.
