very close to park entrance, but compared with other backpackers expensive and not so nice. we were the only guests, thus there was really no athmosphere and the whole place seemed a bit strange/run down. the owner was not there and the present staff (cleaning lady?) could not give us any information

Thank you for your review and to clarify some points. We are in fact the cheapest in our region of Hluhluwe for a comfortable private room with a double bed, fan, wide windows and bedside lamp. Are you perhaps confusing/comparing our double room rates to dorm rates at other venues? Please do your research carefully. No atmosphere? We are not a party venue. Our place was created with an african, rustic, home away from home feel specifically for our many valued visitors who get up early to explore Hluhluwe Game Reserve close by. We have recently irenovated/expanded the lounge/games room area with new corner lounge suite/fun pillows therefore your statement re run down does not make sense. The cleaning lady you refer to is in fact Nelly and we are surprised to read that she could not give any information since she has been with us many years and is always appreciated by our many visitors. I am sure you will understand that the owner cannot be there 24 hours a day. It does sound as that you prefer a more city feel type of hostel with lots of entertainment and that the nature/bush thing is not for you? We hope you enjoy the rest of your travels. Hluhluwe Backpacker Team.
