A Great Place to Meet & Make new friends!

We were the very first budget accommodation on the rock!

Opened in 1985 by Bill Bates, The hostel is proudly owned and operated by the Bates family.

We cater for those who are on a tight budget. We offer a basic, clean and affordable place to stay for the budget conscious traveller whom would still like to experience the great island life.

In a perfect location on the west side of the island, we are just a 1 min stroll down to the beautiful white sandy beach - a great spot for snorkelling. There is a takeaway cafe, hire shop, corner store and bus stop all within 1 minutes walk from the Hostel! And don't forget, every night you can witness some gorgeous sunsets!

Having a lifetime of experience, we are experts on our islands history, culture and customs. We aim to help you save money but still have a fulfilling experience on the Island.

Our spacious kitchen and dining area is great for everyone to cook and appreciate their own personal masterpieces. We have a large common area so it is really easy to socialize.

We have double rooms, twin rooms and 3 & 6 bed Dorm rooms available. All rooms include bedding, a fan and a personal alarm clock - Roosters! (They run the island!)

We also have fitted the rooms with mosquito netting and security screens for safety and comfort.

We offer a range of different activities all designed for budget travellers, creating a comfortable social atmosphere for everyone.

We look forward to being part of your next trip!

    I spent 4 nights in a private room here and had a very good time. There is a friendly atmosphere and many areas to meet socially. Ther kitchen is well equipped and spacious. The hostel is kept very clean - if you find unclean areas it is due to travellers' bad behaviour. Due to old age and for other reasons, the place looks a bit run down, but there is a really friendly and helpful guy who is very busy getting a lot of changes done and also creates a warm and welcoming atmosphere for all.

    Kitchen was very nice. The way to the beach was shortly, only 2 minutes walkway. The room was a little bit dark, the same thing with the bathroom. But for that price is it perfect. There are also friendly persons who will help you if you have any problems. Good hostel!

    The manager and her father were both very friendly and have a good sense of humor. The hostel itself is within walking distance of a small supermarket in a gas station and it is easy to hitch-hike from there to anywhere on the island (or take the bus that comes once an hour). Even though the rooms and bathrooms look quite old, they were clean during the few days I was there. Same with the kitchen. Generally a good and basic place to stay at for a couple of days!

    Das Hostel liegt ca. 10 Minuten zu Fuß von einem der besten Schnorchelspots der Insel entfernt und es gibt einen kleinen Supermarkt in unmittelbarer Nähe. Es gibt wlan allerdings muss man, wie auf dem Rest der Insel auch, dafür zahlen. Die Leute die wir dort getroffen haben waren alle super nett und es ist eine wahnsinnig schöne Atmosphäre! Die Besitzer hingegen sind teilweise etwas unfreundlich und lassen sich manchmal länger nicht blicken, sind aber übers Telefon erreichbar. Sauberkeit okay...

    Ich empfehle das Hostel für einen kurzen Aufenthalt von wenigen Nächten. Die Sanitäranlagen und die Küche sind alt und schwer sauber zu halten. Besonders unangenehm fand ich den Geruch in der Küche. Die Lage des Hostels ist top, denn man läuft nur 10min bis zum Aroa Beach, wo man super schnorcheln kann. Die Mitarbeiter sind sehr bemüht und freundlich. Für den Preis von $20 kann man nicht viel erwarten, daher war es okay.

    Das Hostel ist okay. Man sollte nicht Zuviel erwarten es ist preiswert, liegt gut und das Personal ist freundlich. Bad und Dusche waren von der Sauberkeit her auch ok nur das Zimmer könnte öfters geputzt werden. An sich definitiv ein guter Platz um andere Reisende kennenzulernen.

    Tesa (manager) ist the most weirdest and unfriendliest person i have ever met . They close the kitchen at 10pm till 7-8am.. and make you move from the (ugly) chil area and make you sit outside by a dirty spot. I really never complain about hostels but this is my first time that i have to let the other backpackers know . I checked into a other hostel and payed double till my departure. The other one was 100% better and just 5$ more.
