It's a great place to be! It has a view that beats any 5 star resorts. Backpacking life doesn't get better than this. Very near beach. Nice swimming pool and bar. Dinner good but bit pricey. My only issue is that the kitchen is a mess all the time. No free internet but available. The staff is okay but not great. Oh the girls are great specially the one with dog. but I don't like the Swiss boy who volunteers there. Not helpful and not frienly. He has no business being in hospitality business.
Best bacpackers in South Africa! Great atmosphere created by the staff, very organised in sorting out the many many trips that are planned each day. the rooms are in seperate houses/cottages with bathrooms and kitchen. But make sure you eat at their restaurant that serves the best home made food! A guitarist came in the evening and he was simply amazing. Nice pool and bar area where you can go for lunch and right above the beautiful 16kms of untouched beach,
Wonderful beach. If you are self-catering despite the good meals they offer and don't have your own car, bring your own food! The small corner shop in the village has only a small choice of products.
This place is like summer camp resort for backpackers. The hostel sprawls over a large area offering fantastic ocean views. It's about a short 5-10 min walk from Cintsa Beach and 10-15 mins walk from the town strip. The atmosphere is lively and jovial but I would imagine your experience will be largely influenced by your luck with the weather. Overall it's a great value and one of the more popular hostels in Cintsa. If you can, try and score one of the beds in the "cabin houses" down the hill.
Staff was very friendly and helpful; they never seemed annoyed. Very clean, great atmosphere, lively bunch of people, and the beach is a short walk from the hostel. Cottage like dorm felt like my own apartment with a kitchen and a living room. Great stay.
