Awesome hostel, such a great atmosphere, staff are really friendly and really tasty cooked dinners if you want them. A nice place to chill for a few days.
Michelle was the best during our stay at Dijembe. She is warm and friendly and really makes the place special. She runs it very well for sure, a true professional. She helped us to book our ziplining and helped us to visit the local school which was great. The place is small but not too small and all the guests were really nice. The food was excellent and sitting around the fire talking with the other people at the hostel was enjoyable. A great place to stay in Storm's River!
The hostel is set in a beautiful area which is very close to all the available activities in Storms River (Bungy Jump, Zip-lining, Canopy Tours). However, like other travelers who have stayed here, I was irritated by the constant drum and bass music which pumps through the walls from 8 am - midnight! As there is only one dorm, the atmosphere can be a bit hit or miss. The free breakfast is really nice, and I would certainly recommend that you pay for the hostel dinner (R60), Niel is a great cook.
