    We were robbed while sleeping in this hotel. Someone who knew how to get into the room, with us inside, at night, went in and stole 2 phones and $500. We and another room were robbed that night. Both of us had checkout that morning. We filed a complaint with the Police of Bahamas. The hotel didn't even mention activating the insurance at all. We asked for a coffee (the breakfast was eggs and watermelon just because they had run out of food) and they told us we had to pay for it. A terrible suck.

    Absolute scam. Terrible communication beforehand, no one to check me in when I arrived, had to be let in by another guest to use wifi to call staff to come. Dorm room was awful, dirty, things broken, air con dripped on my pillow all night, woke up soaking wet. Next day tried to complain, no one cared. I booked 2 nights, they said I could check out & just pay for 1 so I did and then found out later they pre-charged my credit card for 2 nights also so I paid for 3 and only stayed 1. They denied this & refused to refund me anything. Location is also not convenient for anything, stay closer to town.

    Very easy access to downtown Nassau and distant beaches with the local bus. Beautiful beaches within easy walking distance of the hostel. Staff did an excellent job of welcoming me and managed to keep the hostel very clean despite all the sand and salt water the guests were bringing in.

    Amazing. The best place to stay if you want chillin and chatting with travellers. The views are great. There are lots of terraces and decks overhanging the Caribbean Sea. A sting ray lives just outside in the coral. Staff are great and everyone so helpful and friendly. Would have loved to have stayed forever...

    Although it is an amazing place, it does need a little maintenance work. After a day of acclimatising, I didn't notice the little failings anymore and they actually added to it's quirkiness. These little things are like broken door handles everywhere, only two coffee cups, wifi only in reception, a slightly stuffy smell due to either damp or renovation work. I got used to them quickly, and would definitely stay again (only for longer) and I would recommend everyone to stay there and meet some new people.
