A nice place to stay in Oudtshoorn. Staff is very friendly and helpful. They have a cool bar and offer ostrich egg for breakfast. The hostel is very clean and well maintained. It is conveniently located in the centre of Oudtshoorn. They do funny tours by bicycle and car and willingly help you organising your other activities. If you're on BAZ bus, they arrange pick ups. Can definitely recommend it.
We booked a double ensuite, had a HUGE room! Kitchens are good. The couple who own the place were so incredibly helpful, we got ideas about what to do in Oudshoorn (we originally were just using it as a break in driving - but there was loads to do). Gave us ideas abotu going to Buffelsdrift for breakfast, what drives to do, hot springs to visit, and helped us plan lots. So helpful. Try the Cinnamin buns! Was sorry to only have time to stay one night.
Had a fantastic stay here, Marius and Petra are very welcoming, helpful and wonderful people. Loved the awesome bike rides offered and the baz bus shuttle makes it very convenient. Will definitely be back!
