    Good location and close to the beach! Room was small but overall cheap and convenient :)

    great hostel, close to the beach, quiet in winter season

    The beds were comfortable and the showers were hot. The communal areas were fairly good. The two big guest fridges had rusty shelves and one of the doors did not seal properly whereas the staff fridge was shiny stainless steel. Guests were forced to go outside to get from the communal areas to the stairs leading to the accommodation as the internal doorway was blocked by a drinks machine that didn't work. The tea towels were a bit manky.

    The most friendly and welcoming staff, you could meet. Great location to the beach, full restaurant kitchen, chatting around camp fires on the chilly nights - I would definitely recommend Manta as value for money.

    Very friendly and knowledgeable who made sure we were able to make the most of our couple of days on the island.

    Very friendly staff, helped me out when I really needed it! Nice place with a really equipped kitchen everything you need, microwave, oven, toasters!! They are local and give good advice where to go!

    Great time here! The beach and surrounding views are spectacular. The staff is friendly and made sure I had a fun time. No lockers in the room.

    Six of us were put in a very small room that was only ventilated by two small fans. Only four of the six members in our group slept in the room because the heat was unbearable. The other two slept downstairs on the couches in the communal area. Staff was very nice and helpful, but AirCon or larger rooms to allow for air flow would greatly have changed our experience.

    Ratings guidelines

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
