All in all it's a nice place to stay. We slept in the 14 bed dorm with seven young male workers from South Africa.

Karl and his wife were both very friendly. My favorite is the lovely garden & Fraser the resident dog. Decent breakfast selection and clean facilities. Guest house is only 10 to 15 min walking to almost everywhere in town. Highly recommended Township tour to see local colored African & Rasta community lives. Its definitely eye-opening!

I have nothing but good stuff to say about this place and the staff. Everything was perfect and then some. Except for a few drunken guest for 20 minutters during the night, which happens. Only thing I regret it forgetting a beer , 2 liters of soda and a wine in the fridge ;)

Good and cozy place to be; amazing staff. Suggestion for improvement: The laundry in the hostel was not really available. Nevertheless, there is a laundry right around the corner.
