It's definitely not the hip, swinging, quirky kind of backpacker's stays you find up and down the garden route but the place is one of the tidiest I've been to. Having no bar is an immediate dampner on atmosphere and there's no real seating area for meals. Having said that the staff are very approachable and will usually go out of there way for you. This is a quiet retreat after the partying!
It was fantastic! It was so wonderful very nice staff and it looked beautiful from the outside!

The thing with this place is that they only take cash, and the mattress (at least in the dorm) is packed with plastic covers, so when you turn your body, it makes big noise, which is not too good for your roommate or yourself. Besides those I think all is good.
