Reviews for The Hippo Backpackers
Well the place is nothing to write home about. I wouldn't go back there for a better place. Sorry it's not for me.
Perfect for a weekend getaway. Beautiful facilities
Too cool, cosy n warm
We stayed only one night and checked in late. The place is very hard to find and a new sign would be nice. Our room was great and the woman running through hostel was nice. There was a wedding party having an after-party there so it was noisy. The kitchen is large and our room and common areas were very clean.
The beach is cool and amazing
"Nice an calm"
Very good place to visit when with friends. Everyone stays together but with some sort of privacy. Great place.
Great place for friends to enjoy each other's company. It opened our minds towards backpackers! We will surely recommend it to friends and colleagues.
