Was initially staying for two nights but ended up staying for five and would have had more if I had the time. Beautiful, mysterious place. Plenty of lovely hikes and activities to do. The staff were very friendly and the bar area with Miki was just the best with a great atmosphere and burning fire.Rory the shuttle driver was even more than happy to braai any meat in bought, every night if you wanted. The dorm I stayed in was 8 beds but had plenty of room and was clean enough. Would def go again

Coming from the busy city of Cape Town this was a really nice peaceful getaway in a friendly mountain forest. The only downside is the unkept roads with large potholes, something to consider when arriving in a non off road vehicle but a small hiccup to an otherwise pleasure of a location with friendly people.

This place was truly amazing. It was less "hippie than thou" than a couple hostels we stayed at previously, which we really appreciate. Just a good mixture of cool, earthy, normal people interested in enjoying nature. The hikes are awesome. They say the hike to Madona and Child is 4hrs, took us 2.5 though. Awesome hike. Awesome nature. Great bathtub. Good dinners/brekkies for good price. Rough but shortish gravel road to drive to. Huge private double room w fireplace! Great staff. Overall fab.

My first time ever in a backpackers, so I didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprized. Nature and the view was amazing. The outside bathtub is a winner. We stayed at Striders which was a little seperate from the rest and every room had its own bathroom which definately did it for us. Being a group of older people, I don't think staying on the grounds at the reception would have worked for us. The pizzas were supurb and the pool nice Dan offered a good tbackup for the Amatola hike
