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.
You cannot pay with credit card and they have no licence to sell alcohol in the hostel.

This is a wonderful place to stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It was very full of young boys when we were there and the staff was able to keep them under control graciously. It was amusing.
The best hostel where i have ever been. Friendly straff, beautiful area. I should recommend it to everybody.
Nice place to stay. Double room, in back of house, clean and quiet Nice pool. Good localisation, walking distance to center of Hermanus to watch of the whales Kitchen with full equipment.
We stayed here for 4 nights, 3 in the cottage around the corner and 1 in the main house. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. The kitchen facilities were good and the common areas were big enough for everyone. The wifi was generally good but could be slow at times. It is only a short walk to town so is a good location. There is parking directly outside of both buildings. The security was good, this was our first stop and we weren't worried at all. This was a great hostel!
