Our room was cold and being next to the bar area, it was very loud.

very quiet, close to the city center.


The staff at the backpackers is very friendly (and chatty) and always up for a laugh. I only stayed for one night but enjoyed it. Good atmosphere. Getting to PE centre is a fair walk though.

I had a great stay at Jikeleza. I had sprained my ankle, and the man at reception was really helpful and carried my backpack for me when needed. I would come back to stay again.
