Welcome to BahaSea Backpackers Hostel!


Our location is unbeatable! We’re right on the beach and within walking distance of five restaurants (including Twisted Lime and Spritz Italian), two coffee shops (Bon Vivant Cocktails & Café and The News Café), a gas station & convenience store, a pharmacy, liquor stores, banks and the gym. And discover Baha Mar at Cable Beach and the downtown area via the #10 bus that stops right at our doorstep, from 6:00am – 6:30pm daily. Visit our front desk to decide which tour to take or what experience to book – not forgetting our own in-house “Swimming Pigs” experience from our beach.   You can also make your own fun experience at BahaSea – our backpackers often arrange get-togethers in the evenings with other guests.

Nassau | Bahamas

Welcome to The Bahamas! Our location is perfect to learn about Nassau without renting a car, as we have good local transport stopping right outside our door. You will easily discover the immediate area and downtown, supermarkets, bars, clubs and main tourist sites!

Our staff are warm and friendly and always looking forward to welcoming our next world traveler! Will it be YOU?

The People

Difference is a wonderful thing we all have in common! We opened the hostel in January 2018, and as of today we have hosted more than 10,000 people representing over 100 different countries, and we’re not stopping any time soon! We’re an international, inclusive and respectful community, and proud of it. Help us keep it that way!

Curious what people are saying? These two fantastic bloggers stayed with us and we want to share the love – BahaSea: An Ode to the Hidden Bahamian Hostel by CatchFlightsNotFeelings & Leave the Resort for Downtown Nassau and Arawak Cay by Travelirvana.

The Pets

Our hostel is pet-friendly, but please ask us before bringing your dinosaur along and keep him or her on a leash at all times. We have three rescue swimming pigs on-site, and you can feed them and enjoy their company in the ocean. Book the swimming pigs experience when you make your reservation or when you check in. Learn more about them here.

The Space

BahaSea has large open decks, indoor common spaces, and two swimming pools – great for large groups, retreats, and events! There is also a small private beach and a larger public beach attached to the property. Kitchens and living rooms are shared, but sea-side hammocks work on a first-come, first-served basis! Out of respect for everyone we ask that the volume levels are kept down after 11PM.

What to do?

Nassau has a great variety of land and sea excursions and adventures from which to choose. Visit our front desk (open 8am – to 8pm) to discuss your options. There’s something for everyone! History buff? Visit the Queen’s Staircase, the Slavery Museum, the Pirate Museum, Fort Charlotte or the Clifton Heritage site tour. Interested in local food and beverages? Ask us about the best food and rum tours, and the names of our favorite restaurants. Beach-bum? We got you covered. Thrill-seeker? There are hundreds of tours to choose from in The Bahamas. We’ll be happy to help you find what suits you.

The Team

Our team prides itself in being as helpful and kind as possible. We love our guests and want them to enjoy BahaSea and The Bahamas as much as we do. Curious to know more? Contact us!
