  • It was a great place to stay at, and all the resources are user friendly, from staff to the equipments. I am just dissapointed i tried to book for December 22nd-26th, they are fully booked. But overall i enjoyed my stay at Ansteys Beach. we will see you soon!

  • By far our favorite hostel! The main staff, Michelle, Tess and Dan, make the atmosphere. Fun, friendly, organized, helpful, and spend a lot of time just chatting it up and getting to know the guests. I can't describe how much they add to the atmosphere. The accomodations are just funky and diverse. The facility runs up a tiered hill, with rooms of all sizes and charm, great for most visitors to choose from. Huge kitchen, stocked with utensils, pots, pans.. Pool and grill great additions. A+++

  • The staff weren't very helpfull and seemed as though they were there for their own jolly! Baz Bus wasn't booked and wrong information given. Locals allowed in off the street and security gate not working! Had to pay extra to watch a dvd and got told to go to bed at 22:00 as reception was closing. Would definitely not recommend to others.
