A well run hostel my the American owners, Roy is full of useful information about the local area and provided lots of good tips. The hostel is kept very clean, there's a decent kitchen and a laundry sink. Everything the backpacker needs and just a few steps from the beach.

Overall great place. Good location stayed for a week with a buddy. Nice that they have the option of private rooms for guest that are staying longer like we did. Price is perfect. Very clean & friendly staff.

We had a great stay at the Funky Dodo Backpackers Hostel, there's dormitory rooms available and private rooms, some ensuite like ours. The ambience of the place is what makes this place work so well. In addition the owners Roy and Anna have a wealth of knowledge to tap into if required. The town of Hopkins is very chilled and the locals are very welcoming, so relax and enjoy your stay

I was a little sick when I got there, but the management and all the people connected took a good care to make sure that I had a plenty of water to drink and a good place to sleep which I needed, and when I got a little chilly, they found a blanket for me to stay warm. I could not find a better place to stay. It was just like home. I thank them all very much, and hope to see them again soon!

I can't wait to return to what I can now call my second home thanks to Anna, Roy and there furry family.
Located in beautiful place it was hard to imagine leaving.
The beds are so comfortable which I'd never really expect.
I love the Funky DoDo.
