Great staff, cheap meals and something happening in the bar every night.
stayed at Calypso Backpackers for more than 2 weeks. really enjoyed my stay and i didn't want to leave. they've got a kitchen and a bar and the atmosphere is great! you hang out, have dinner and a couple of drinks and just enjoy. it's a 15min walk to town but there are buses to town almost every hour, free of charge! all staff members are so cool and help whenever they can! we booked a lot of tours with tour guru vee at reception, she helped us a lot with deciding what to do. i would highly recommend this hostel!!
This is the best hostel i have ever stayed in!!!! From the welcome at reception from Buddha, to the friendly service at the bar from Rina!!!! this place puts hospitality above everything else!!! I have never felt more at home away from home, anywhere else!!!!! There is so much to do here, and also chill out if you want to relax!!! great people, great vibe and more so -- GREAT STAFF!!!!! they really do make the place!!!!! Hope to see you all again soon!!!!! Especially Vee on front desk!!!! Ask her anything!!!!!! She has all the answers for your travel wants and needs!!!!!!
This hostel was all right, the only thing is that it's a bit expensive, and they have a bar and so no bring your own.
Friendliest hostel we stayed in!
We stayed here for a week in July 2008. It was excellent. We arrived off the Greyhound bus at 1 a.m., so they said they couldn't pick us up, but if we got a cab they would refund us the full amount. And they did! From the word go they were friendly, the staff always trying to remember you by name, and going out of their way to help us. They always gave us their personal opinion on tours, having been on them themselves, never just gave us a leaflet. Excellent internet access, eight to ten computers available until 10 p.m. on the Global Gossip network. Fifteen-minute walk into the CBD, but buses run for free from the hostel every hour. Friendly atmosphere, cheap and quality food from the morning till late at night from the on site bar. Lots of things to do in the evenings, something happening most nights, from pub quizzes to pool competitions. Well recommended.
Friendly, clean, simply the best!
Stayed with them for a week in June '08. Their staff were very friendly, always trying their best to help guests, going beyond what is required most of the time. The bar and swimming pools backpackers in the night -- a remarkable water hole for you to get to know each other. Other than that, the dorms are very clean and there's surely no lack of toilets! We weren't bothered by the distance from CBD because we spent most of the day out and only returned in the night. Otherwise, a walk back doesn't take more than twenty-five minutes too. The good thing about this place is that cheap eateries line across the block. Much much cheaper than the food at CBD area. Plus plus point for a quick bite or even lunch!
stayed five nights there and was really impressed, friendly helpful staff, good meals, cheap drinks (although not a big choice of beer) and good parties, and the pub next door is good to chill out in. had a great stay, only downfall is the beds are a bit hard. oh well, awesome place.
Clean, Relaxing, and Fun!
This has been by far one of the best hostels i've stayed in. Don't let the shuttle bus into town put you off, they're every hour and if it's full they'll come back for you! Staff were very friendly and helpful and bags of fun. free tea and coffee, free sunscreen. Easy to meet people in the large dorms. I don't know how they did it. even though there is a bar, you cant hear a squeak in any of the rooms! I'd stay again.
