We are very pleased to announce that a refurbishment is now underway at Ocean Backpackers Independent Youth Hostel. The communal lounge, hall, stairs and landings are being redecorated and one dorm is having a whole new shower unit and bathroom redecorated. We are also going to be having new carpets throughout the communal areas/stairs and landings.

Each year we strive to make improvements to make your stay as pleasant as possible and we are hoping you will really love the transformation. We also look forward to welcoming our new manager Alexis at the end of January who will complete the new look!!!

We are sorry to say this means we are closed from now until the 21st December and then again straight after New Year until January 18th 2013. We look forward to welcoming you in the New Year.

We wish one and all a very Happy Christmas!!
