This was one of my more enjoyable hostel visits. Marlin and the rest of the staff and volunteers are wonderful. Barbara and Nate were extremely helpful and friendly assisting me with check in and showing me around the hostel. Other volunteers do a great job of keeping the place clean throughout the day.Unlike other hostels, the beds were very comfortable and they provide you with 2 pillows and an actual comforter.I found Mission Beach to be a more quiet area, so this place is perfect for those looking for a nice place to work remote or just relax. For those who enjoy a party, the nightlife is only a 20min walk away. Expect to make friends and have good conversation here.My only negative was, the sinks were very small. Marlin says they will be making improvements soon based on feedback. Can't wait to return and see this place even better!

Such a cute little place ! Athena and Marlin were so lovely and bringing some nice international family vibe around the place. Perfect place for nomad workers as it is a very relaxed atmosphere. The beds were super comfortable. Pancake breakfast was such a treat !

Good balance between party and chill. Was able to sleep fine. Staff are awesome, they’re always around and super helpful! The manager went above and beyond keeping the place safe and orderly.Free breakfast and coffee were of good quality. Overall great stay for the price.

Amazing hostel with amazing people! The hostel is super clean with all the amenities needed. It has a nice homey vibe and is right next to the beach. There’s also an amusement park with a rollercoaster. Marlin is a very funny guy who does a great job managing it.

This was a nice quiet hostel. Good for digital nomads or people doing remote work. I think Brock and Barb should start their own reality TV show. I love the arguments they have between each other lol. Other than that, all the staff members were great but Barb is my most favorite one. The first time I went to the hostel, I called and told them I was gonna be really late and check in the middle of the night but no staff would be up that late but she was willing to stay up and she gave me her personal number to text or call when I arrived and she stayed up all night waiting for me. What a true staff member! She's the highlight of my time there. Good times smoking some joints and drinking some beers with her during my stay. I'm gonna miss her, she's my favorite. Overall, the hostel was great. Everything is right there.

Very nice place. It is quiet house but if you want to action, it is just walk to the other house where they have the reception, activities, breakfast and coffee bar. Location is perfect and the morning sun at the front garden was super relaxing.
