This is so far the best hostel location and the million dollar view we have ever stayed around the world! It is right at the beach with two clean pools. There are two buildings joining together so a lot of space to spread around. The housekeepers and Louna were the best! They

We really recommend this hostel! Good price for the bahamas, clean room and nice staff. Check out the pig swim it was really fun. Transportation to the airport for $5 is really good because taxis are really expensive.

Beautiful chill hostel Loved the hostel! The only thing that you'll see if you stay here is that it is quite removed from downtown. The hostel is located in between the airport and downtown and although there are buses that are quite cheap to get downtown and back this all

Hello! Good luck with contacting BahaSea...their communication and organization that we experienced was subpar. As far as transfers from the airport goes... There are 2 options. Option 1-Take a taxi from immediately outside the terminal, they will all be waiting there and this will cost around 18-25$ USD. (Add a couple dollars more of you have multiple large bags). Fast and yes expensive but everything in the Bahamas is. Option 2-is the local jitney bus..the #12 bus which stops somewhere near the Shell Gas Station at the 3rd roundabout driving away from outside the airport. (Open Google maps and look for Shell Gas Station). We were originally going to do this but it is a far walk, especially with luggage and especially when you’re a tourist. There is NO SIDEWALK. So be prepared to walk on the grass/dirt with your luggage because I wouldn’t take a chance being on the road with how fast the cars drive by. The jitney(bus) that stops here would only cost $2-5 I believe but is it worth the safety risk/time/effort, especially if it’s hot out? I don’t think so. (It is a far walk!)Take a taxi. BahaSea offers a return to airport shuttle for $10 per person but if you have 2 or more people, just take a taxi. In this case with everything, pay the extra dollars and take a taxi. They’re all regulated in Nassau so just confirm price when you get in and you’ll get where you need to go quick and painless. Enjoy!!!

Our piglets Aglae and Sidonie are only going to swim when the weather permits it and at low tide. We only charge $30 which allow our gardner to take care of them. They were saved from a barbecue while they were 2 months old and are now 14 months old and really cute!

IS it a safe area to walk in? Do all rooms have there own bathroom ?
"We found the girls dorm [4.3E] very comfortable, boasting ceiling fans and breezy windows and 2 full baths on the floor."
"Some of the rooms that you can rent are shared with others. Some you can rent for yourself only."
"look at rooms before you make your choice."
""the appeal is wonderful but just be careful""
"The female 10beds dorm is really nice ! and if you are lucky, you can have the bed with the view over the see,"
US$51 - US$215 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
