Great energy

Pros: LOVED the bunk setup creating individual spaces and particularly my 'room with a view' looking out over the courtyard and toward the east/beach.
Cons: Mattress a little hard
Location: Super-central. Cheap parking next door. Beach a block away. Festival and everything you could want in food and restaurants downtown.
I didn't fit the hostel stereotype - young, travelling abroad, ready to party, etc... I am a youth mentor on the GC for a business conference - and yet I still found BUNK ticked all the boxes. There was a great balance between youthful fun combined with consideration and respect. I found all the guests happy and friendly and respectful in the shared spaces. Add this to a super-central location, I knew I had picked the perfect place to stay. Thanks.

No frills accommodation

All I can say is its cheap and easy. Rooms were decent for the price range. Only real complaint was being put in the wrong dorm, paid for a 4bunk, was put in an 8bunk. Party atmosphere, friendly guests and just an all-round good vibe. 10/10 value, just don't get out off but place being half hostel half construction site it's

Great back packers, close to beach and night life

Fantastic, new facilities, great privacy for dorms, personal power sockets at each bed, could charge phone without risk of it being robbed. Under refurbishment but that wasn't a problem. Cheap secure parking.
