Tiki Lodge Bar & Restaurant Reviews

Tiki Lodge Bar & Restaurant Reviews from the Web

Pros: Great location and very comfortable beds. Cons: Wifi doesn't reach the rooms and there isn't really many places for the hostel guests to hang out because the seating is reserved for restaurant guests only. Also, from the restaurant you can see directly into the shower area... It would be nice to have a curtain separating the restaurant and the showers.


The staff were some of the most un-welcoming and un-friendly. Other than that the hostel isnt too bad. No wifi in the dorm :(


I did like the Tiki Lodge. Location is great, the staff is friendly and the dorm and bathrooms were always clean. It is a bit sad that reception opens so late in the mornings and I found it weird that our bathrooms were also the bathrooms of the restaurant's guests. They could watch us brushing our teeth while having their dinner. A bit strange. But if you don't mind that, the place is great. I would stay here again. You can also rent surf gear from them and they help you book tours.


The restaurant, bathroom and the dorm are beautiful and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The kitchen is ok, could be cleaner and needs more and better equipment.


Great location and the staff are really nice and always here to help with anything (tours, shuttles, etc.)! I stayed in the dorm that was clean, with good AC and curtains around each bed which is a plus point. I highly recommend this place!


There are 2 kittens living here who really need some help, one seems to have ticks and the other has a swollen tummy. The backpackers staying here are feeding them, so please if you can help out as well do so! :) besides that the hostel was nice, beds have curtains. The bar makes some amazing cocktails. Kitchen could be improved and also the common area for the guests (now it's mostly shared with the bar/restaurant) I'd recommend staying here!


Nice and helpful employees. Really nice restaurant/bar next to the dorms and the facilities are super super clean! Surely recommend it!


Very friendly staff! I forgot my rain jacket and they put in effort to get it to me even a week later. Kitchen had everything one needs, and they provide pancake flour and syrup as well as coffee powder for everyone to use. Can recommend :)


The kiten isnt that clean, the staff ia amazing amd it rigth in the middel. The dorms are good and clean.


Nice place to stay for a while. The dorm is clean and comfortable with enough privacy and lockers. The kitchen is not that clean sadly, it is in need of an upgrade in equipment as well. The private rooms are very small, you can not easily place your backpacks or suitcases in here. However, the private rooms are pretty cheap! The dorms do have a/c, the privates do not. People are friendly and location is perfect in the middle of town.


Great place! The owners are very sweet and the place is super clean. Great bathrooms and showers, the restaurant is also super tasty, great cocktails! I stayed in the lodges, they are super cute and comfy.
