My surf club stayed at the escape for the first time this year for three days during the university national surf competition. We were looking for a nice hostel with friendly staff and a bed after a big night out and as a place to relax or get ready to go surfing. It was perfect for this and it out did itself; the included full english was ideal for a student about to surf all day long. the beds were comfortable and the rooms clean and with enough space for us all. the toilet and wash facilities were plenty and the bar area was great with good value prices on drinks. The best part was the really nice staff who did so much to take care of our group. the parking was fine and there is unrestricted parking nearby if you need extra parking. the hostel is also nicely located to get to local beaches or into town. 10/10 would recommend especially to students and surfers but also would be fine for other groups. I believe in constructive criticism as it helps everyone improve. it would be great to have a safer place to store surfboard(what is there is good but still lacks the security of a locked shed/room) and a larger line to hang wetsuits or potentially even a drying room. not for me personally but maybe some old surf guides in the bar would be good for weekend surfers. Overall a really great hostel look forward to going back
