I stayed just 1 night, room was clean, staff very friendly on check-in. Free shuttle bus to the city, should run later than 4:20pm though. 1 minute walk to the beach & I had a good $7 dinner at the pub next door. Thank you

Although there was a proper mattress with sheets, my bed had had bed bugs and I was bitten 50 times. Not a pleasant experience to say the least. Only had a small fan in the room to generate cool air, which was not enough and I woke up drenched in sweat. Also, the bathrooms got dirty extremely quickly. The hostel itself is close to main beach (the beach being 2 minutes walk away), but 4kms from Surfers. Free shuttle runs 4 times daily there and back.
