Really nice place with spacious dorm rooms! The view is fantastic. The dorm was a bit dirty though and wifi should be for free!


this place makes you pay 40 rand an hour to use the wifi. i really found that to be off putting. we stayed in one of the small cabins. at night it was a really far walk to the bathroom. the bar is cool, but a lot of townie type people hang out there.


We only stayed one night so we can't really comment on everything but, overall, we enjoyed our stay. Good cook (we tried the curry), cool bar (though you should know that when the bartender offers you to taste sth you enquired about, you are expected to pay for it) and good atmosphere. We stayed in a shared flat/house, good experience but only the main door locks, you get no key for your personal room..not a big problem though since you can leave your valuables at reception.


This hostel is a great place! Nice activities in the area... unless you are unlucky like me and that the providers of the activities are out off town. Maybe ask before booking? Also Mama Tofu township tour needs to be book a week ago apparently. It's a cute little place, very chilling. 10 min walk to the wild beach. Nice bar, nice food!
