Parking on site..... good sized apartments with kitchen and great shower! Sofa and bed.... tv (didn't work but the thought was there)..... hot tub, tennis court, walking distance to beach, few bars and plenty of other backpacker accommodation around. Easy check in and out. Friendly staff and good atmosphere! 😊 would stay again!

We stayed here several nights in an ensuite dorm room before moving to an apartment with friends. The room was spacious and had a bathroom and kitchen ensuite. The bathroom was clean and water pressure was very high in the shower! Room had double beds which was a surprise. The place is on the main 'backpackers strip' which is excellent...

The hostel is in a great location, 1 minute to the beach and 5 mins to the town centre! The courtyard is awesome and generates a good atmosphere most nights, the pool, tennis courts and hot spa were all huge bonuses. The rooms were pretty standard for hostels (not enough plug sockets, one pillow, limited storage) and the kitchen was...

The staff and guests at Bay Adventurer are so friendly and welcoming and keen for everyone to have a good time. The facilities are awesome, with a hot tub, swimming pool and tennis courts, all free to use! Bedrooms, toilets and kitchen were kept very clean. If you're looking for a fun time definitely stay here!

Perfect couple of nights away with friends for my birthday. Beautiful setting and layout with great kitchen, outside area and tennis was a bonus then a quick dip in the pool to cool off. When my cake was brought out everyone sung and it was an amazing night which I make friends with the local staff and other travellers. Washing...

Staff were very friendly and hardworking, place was very busy! Facilities were very good, even tennis courts...

We stayed 3 nights in a 1 bedroom apartment situated above the pool area. The facilities were clean, although the cooking pots were well worn, some unusable. We cooked on the BBQs which were good. There was a little damage to the interior. The front desk staff were helpful and friendly, knowing and advising which sailing company was best. This...

Friendly, clean, social hostel just down the road from the beach and 10 minutes' walk from the centre of town. The room I stayed in was spacious and had plenty of places to charge phones etc. Free international landline phone calls are not something I've seen offered in a hostel before!

Very dirty place, bathroom was never cleaned in the two days I was there. Kitchen is really messy and smells bad. Staff are friendly but I never saw anyone clean anything. Toilet paper was not being refilled either. The good thing about this hostel is that it's a really sociable place, because everyone sits in the courtyard together in the...
