    Hi Jess T Thank you for your wonderful review, it was really great having you with us! Please come back again soon!

    Salty Crax staff were very friendly and helpful with good local knowledge. Casual hostel with large kitchen where you can cook your own dinner. Donatello the tortoise was also very cool as he walked around the back yard.

    Hi, I am coming to do a volunteering scheme with Gap 360. Was wondering if the hostel is busy at this time of year?

    Hi Elle Thank you for the question. Yes, we are quite busy, but not full at the moment so if any of your friends want to join we can still accommodate them :) Kind Regards Shona
