excellent location and great experience

Good 6,0
Gorgeous ocean view but poor dorm conditions
The main (and probably the only) benefit of this hostel is amazing ocean front view with small but nice pools. Neighbordhood felt safe and sort of upscale, but not many things to do other than 5 restaurants. The room itself had air conditioning, but a lot of other things were in poor condition - no door locks at all in all dorms, very humid bathroom with some mold, loud crowds that tend to party late night and could make it hard to sleep, no security or front desk staff after 8 or 9pm, no food or restaurant on site. Given that there is a lack of options for budget travelers for dorms in the Bahamas, it may be an okay option given its beautiful ocean but if you aren’t short of money, elsewhere comfort would be better

Excellent base - clean, quiet and awesome deck.
Great place, super convenient, fantastic porch. Recommend bringing back take-out pizza with a pirate beer and soaking up the view.

Avoid here at all costs
We found the following; Maintenance gear was all over our bathroom floor upon entering. The sealing the had been ‘fixed’ was an eye sore. There were no curtains on ANY windows in the bathroom so privacy was nonexistent. The balcony door once shut had a gaping hole with the wind howling in. The ‘shower’ was only a small hose attached to the bath which did not stay upright. Showering was difficult. The main door to the room it was loud and constantly banging due to a gap which we had to improvise insulation using various brochures in the room. There was a large mound/hole above the single bed. We asked why such a room was sold. Sam said that there were no other rooms available and that she would come to look. We showed her online it was saying other rooms were available. She showed us another room but sadly there was no air conditioning and only one single bed (we had booked and paid for two.) On our second day there we returned to find that there was no water at all. We thought this was just our room as we had seen nor had not been told of any inconvenience until a guest pointed to the small notice attached to the door out the back. We booked an alternative hotel until the end of our stay. When leaving I told Sam that the service we had received was unacceptable and no reasonable attempt had been made to create a comfortable environment for us. Her response ‘I don’t think it’s as bad as you are making it out to be.’ This coming from a manager

Beautiful ocean front. Rooms - ok but new bedding and mattresses would be helpful.
