Liked: This is a basic no frills guesthouse, but you have everything that you need. The beds are comfy and it is quiet at night. You can see the beach from the balcony and are on the sand in a few metres from the front door. There are heaps of places to eat within walking distance of the guesthouse ranging from the super cheap to the really fancy. We walked to the spice garden about half an hour down the road. and the bus goes every 15 mins to take you to Georgetown and further around the island. The staff are really friendly and helpful, they have tours on offer but they were never pushed upon us.

Liked: Location across the road from the beach is great! Walking distance to bus stop, night market and long beach night food court. Staff were friendly and courteous. Hostel is locked up after hours - you can come in and out with your key.

Disliked: Email confirmation stated no children under 12 which was not on the hostelbookers site. Didn't affect us but would be a rude shock if you had a small child and didn't find out until after you had paid a non-refundable 10% to hostelbookers! Booking site stated there was a DVD but our children were not allowed to use the TV unless it was during the day or after 11pm as the staff were watching their "show" at night. We were out during the day so no movies were able to be watched on their equipment. Internet was turned off each night for some reason. Non airconditioned rooms were almost unbearable in November when we were there.

Liked: Very close to the beach, very friendly staff, close to the night market and food courts. Cool drinks and beer is available in the hostel for a reasonable price and we were able to check in at 1am in the night.

Disliked: The fan rooms are extremely hot and every morning around 5.30am the muezzin from the mosque NEXT DOOR prays in a very high volume.
