We actually rented the entire backpackers,accommodation was great but we had strangers hanging out at the accommodation,not nice to wake up to strangers sitting on the couches when you rent the entire place. Apparently there is accommodation next door,would of been nice if we were told about this.

Comfortable bunker beds and neatly kept bathrooms and kitchen. It was my first time sleeping in a dormitory with other young energetic travellers. I will sure do it again.

Salty Crax is an excellent establishment. The place is conveniently located near to shops, restaurants and bars, as well as to the beach front. The place itself is clean and well equipped, with a lapa designed for people to relax and mingle in the evenings over a couple of beers or ciders. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. I will definitely go back!
