Our experience at the hostel was terrible. I'll list why 1. Noisiest place I have ever stayed in. Trying to get an 8 hour sleep we got three hours. People smashing doors, laid music, people laughing and screaming until around 4am. No respect for sleeping whatsoever. 2. Smelly dirty sheets. We found hairs. 3. No respect for people's food. Someone eat out that was in the shared fridge. Just terrible...

Great staff at check in, gave us maps, ideas of where to eat, great tour, etc. Had a double ensuite - huge room and huge bathroom. There is a pool, bbq area, lovely garden, bar area, etc. However, there is no alcohol sold on site.
Great hostel, friendly staff who are willing to assist and organise activities. Hermanus is a stunning town with lots to do as well
Good location near plenty of shops and not far from the harbour. Hostel is clean and also seems quite lively. Offers great shark diving and room packages (cheapest we saw). Unfortunately the hostel had overbooked the dorm which led us sharing a single bunk however the staff willingly compensated us for this hiccup in the morning with no problems. Was overall happy with service.
