Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    Night life is pretty poor during covid times but I guess thats the price you pay for travel during the pandemic.

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    Some unpleasent guys at the beach have a business of ripping off tourists for surfboard rentals. Best bet is to get your rental through the hostel.

  • How was the food?

    No need for a restaurant! The street food is so damn good!

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Use Uber as much as possible.

  • Packing tips?

    Sunscreen, shorts, portable charger.

  • Transportation Tips?

    Uber is probably your best bet but public transport is very cheap and efficient.


  • Hostel Home, beautiful and friendly little hostel with all the necessities. Rooms were dorms and clean.

  • The Selina, beautiful social hostel. Really modern and clean with bar, pool and restaurant. Surf boards available for rent also!
