      Such a lovely location, our large bright sunny room had a view of the sea. We really liked the way the hostel is split between houses so you have facilities shared between smaller numbers of people, its like a house share rather than a big hostel. Lots of free stuff too - Booked.nets, spades for hot water beach, beach towels, DVD.s, fishing rods. The team are really friendly and helpful. We were sad to leave and hope to come back sometime next year. Make sure you pick some pipis for dinner whilst you are there!

      Lovely and clean. Booked a double room in one of the lodges, shared kitchen and bathroom with another guest, but plenty of space. Beach straight across the road.

      Can't think of anything to dislike. Only thing to note: it's a longish walk from town if you don't have your own transport

      The owner andthe manager are very nice. Helpto privode me tols to repair my bag. Alsothey provide feee wifi, though only 20m. But it is very convenient to plan next dayZs trip. Most other hotels try to penny customers on wifi.

      over all its good . maybe more spacious

      Very nice stay, friendly staff. I wasnt housed with any lice ridden weirdos so thanks very much:)

      All things considered, for instance price, there is nothing I didnt like about the Lodge.

      The friendly and helpful staff, then the location, a beatiful beach just across the street. Sharing with interesting fellow travellers,all helped to make our "must do bucket list" expericence worth it.

      Excellent value for money, with splendid, friendly staff. Many hobbies/activities catered for, and every possible gadget, sporting and fishing sport available either free (with deposit) or for low cost. Would unhesitatingly recommend to anyone.

      It was close to the sea.

      The sheets smelt funny and gave off some kind of fumes that made it hard to sleep.

      The rooms were lovely, and the place was really quiet at night, plus the price was amazing.

    • Single

      Easy to find, friendly, a kitchen in each flour, enough showers and toilets for the flour I was. I was just for one night, but it was a good stop.

      Great location - right on the beach Free use of Booked.nets was a good touch too!
