Surfing Wombats knocked my shoes off with their amazing vibes, delicious pizza and perfect location. I miss my Wombat family!
Wombats attracts the coolest people ever! I booked for a few days and have stayed for over a month.
Absolutely the best place to base yourself as a surfer! Can walk to 5 different breaks and take an easy tuk tuk ride up and down the coast to explore more.

In Surfing Wombats we care a lot about the sense of community, and we love to let our guests feel like at home with a big family. That’s why we provide music instruments to jam in the day time at the hostel or at the night time around a nice bonnefire on the beach. Every Tuesday our famous open mic take place in the hostel and everyone is welcome to join it!

You can also train yourself for a very competitive ping pong tournament that takes place on a Friday evening, or just chill in the chilling area and do some yoga or watch a movie with us once a week on our specials movie nights!
