We stayed 5 nights at no worries. First we had room no. 7 which is basically a chamber without windows. The small bathroom is flooded after taking a shower und dries slowly. So we decided to move to room no. 2 after Ben offered us another room. Room no. 2 is more like a cabana and open to all sides....

Sorry to hear about the problems you had. I wish you had told us at the time because we could have easily fixed it for you, when we read this review we got straight on the stepladder and fully cleared the ceiling. And as for no mosquito nets, we use repellent vaporisers which we have received no other complaint about...

I have to start of by saying I'm not a surf bunny so visiting Arugum Bay was merely to chill with friends. A friend of mine suggested No Worries and I was releived to find it suited me to a T I am late 30's and was dreading a young vibe which kept me up all night. The rooms were...

Happily spent 8 nights here in the relaxing and friendly atmosphere. Directly opposite the Beach Huts, this is a lovely set out Guesthouse/Hotel with spacious rooms, good company from the owners and great location to the beach. Close to the 'action' of Beach Hut where there is a party most nights but also quiet enough. Stardust hotel that has daily...

I planned to stay 4 nights and it became 8. I would highly recommend this place. An English chap called Ben and an Indian chap called Shiva have been running this place in 2013 although I'm not sure they will be there forever. They are nice, amusing and helpful. The rooms are spacious and clean although maybe avoid room 10...

Tucked away between other guesthouses in a little leafy alley between the main street of the village and the beach, the No Worries has laid- back, good vibes. A great place to chill after a hard day on the road or on (and under) the waves. Plenty of space to sit and relax in the shade. The current English/kiwi managers...

We stayed for 3 nights. The rooms were basic (fan+toilet), spacious and clean. The most important thing is that all the staff including Ben are very friendly and welcoming; something that is important when you on holiday in a foreign place. The Rice n Curry Shiva made for us was fantastic and you can ask for tea and coffee when...

Thoroughly enjoyed our time at No Worries and we were sad to leave when we eventually did! The staff are really friendly and do over and above to make you feel part of the hostel. The rooms are basic but clean, and Ben and Shiva really are great hosts. But it's a hostel more than a home stay so there's...

We stayed at No Worries at the beginning of the East coast season, Shiva and Ben were completing the finishing touches of the refurb to 'No Worries' guesthouse.

We stayed at No Worries when Ben and Shiva were working flat out to get their new guest house up to speed at the start of the season, but they still had time to get our puncture fixed and generally look out for us - great hospitality and atmosphere - Highly recommended. 50 meters from a great surfing beach, good...
