the hostel is located on main road with very heavy traffic noise, so you could as well set up your tent down on the pavement for a similar night rest. I spotted individuals taking “guests” to rooms. During the three days I was at the hostel, the owner was not there, but friends of hin who acted as supervisory staff. Jaded 50-60 year-old, who smoked cigarettes day-in day-out and used to boss around junior (black) staff in a way one would not expect to have to witness in the new South Africa!

The dorm room is so much small if you compare with others backpackers the same price, but it's not the problem. Actually the main problem is dirty room and is not safe because the locked is so much small.

It was very noisy at night. It is a place for people who loves partying and drinking alcohol but not for people who want a properly sleep at night.
