It is situated close to town, the mountains and the ocean so there is always something to do nearby. There's a swimming pool, bar, fire pit, DSTV and as much hot water as you can use! Full self-catering facilities are available and they do BBQ's every night.

The staff are really knowledgeable and friendly. They are also famous for the Great White Shark cage diving trips and the sandboarding trips which we organise.

We look forward to meeting you!

    Great hostel only minutes from the ocean (on foot). The staff was wonderful and did a great job suggesting where to walk along the cliffs to enjoy the views. Also, they organized a wonderful braai (south african BBQ) at night, which was a fantastic way to meet people and enjoy delicious food.
