The best hostel we stayed in in South Africa. The staff were so lovely that the entire place had a friendly, relaxed buzz about it and all the guests sat around chatting all evening. It has a lovely kitchen for eating together, a spacious and comfy sitting room and an area outside without a couch. We found it just perfect and really enjoyed our stay.

It might be nice if the breakfast included some cereals and fresh milk


Nice place with good staff. The bathroom in the dorms isn't really good, because there's no place for you to change when you showered and you have to be careful with other people coming to the bathroom.


Very nice owners!
