Really top place and great staff! Ask Brad for stories if you want entertainment. Big thanks to him as well as Helena, James "the horse whisperer" and Rebecca!


This hostel is run by volunteers as staff, they are wonderful, but the owner did not even speak to us. We booked a twin room and ended up in a raised tent in the garden for 2 days. The hostel is not really clean and was very cold (it was winter). The area is secure, but this was the only hostel we stayed in in SA where someone could come in and access the gardens/ tents/ back door straight from the road as there is no fencing or security. Worst of all the hostels we stayed in in SA


This Backpacker is awesome. The staff is unforgetable and the atmosphere is so chillig. I would fly back to SA only to visit this Backpacker again! And you have to do the bungeejump! Otherwise you are not in the hall of fame. Thank you so much for this great time Dijembe!!!!! :)
