This hostel is mainly for volunteers but they were quite happy to accomodate mere holidaymakers. We stayed a couple of days on route to a Safari and a night on the way back and the hostel was perfect for us (family of 2 adults and 2 children). It was really nice having the upstairs patio to relax in and an added bonus were the interesting people who stayed there. They were doing voluntary work in the area and all had interesting stories to tell. The food was good and the dinners very economical.

Security problems such as thieves during the night and internet is always down or very slow when available. Lack of shower facilities in some rooms and water takes a long time to heat up and warm water only available for a short time.
