    Perfect size of a hostel, get in touch with other backpackers easily in the nice garden with hammocks. Cheap water. Unfortunately, my mattress was very uncomfortable in the dorm, but the rest was perfect. Perfect place to chill. Clean bathrooms!

    The Funky Dodo Backpackers is a great hostel. It's located in the center of Hopkins right next to the sea. The staff is really nice and easy to communicate with. The place was very clean. I strongly recommend this hostel!
