Magnificent setting! We'll certainly be back as some of us could not experience everything due to the tree festival at TerraKhaya.

I am actually so glad the Hobbit didn't have a television. The men always watch rugby and the women have to entertain themselves. But during our stay at Away with the fairies we all chatted and laughed the night away. It was truly a wonderful experience

Overall had a great stay there. The facilities were nice and we hiked to the Madonna and Child waterfall and did abseiling which was a lot of fun. The only thing that I found misleading was when arranging for shuttle pick up, they did not disclose the amount which I found to be pricey compared to what other hostels charge. It cost me another night in a sense to get there and another night to get back. Other than that, we had a great time!


it was so cold! even with the heater on. but everything else was amazing!


The hostel was a great atmosphere. Very easy going with great views of the mountain (and the stars were incredible at night). The facilities were average to good. Very clean. Great place to stay in Hogsback.
