The best about this hostel is the staff, they are friendly, helpful and even offer you a personalized city tour as well as a cheap ride to the airport. The location is great for young people and backpackers!

We booked a tent and hoped that there would be a tent to sleep, but we only booked for camping, that is a bit confusing if you book via hostelworld. Fortunately, the staff was pretty cool and found a tent somewhere in the hostel and builded it up for us. They also gave us some free Savanna even though it was our fault.


Perfect for a night, has a grand large front room and a nice pool, just a short walk away from the beachfront. Great staff. Would stay there again.


Enjoyed my stay there very munch. Had a longer travel through SA, so I CAN compare: The staff is really, really nice and put much effort in organising your trips. Cleanliness comparable good. Regularaly Braais organised by the staff free to join.


Great place! Staff was awesome. Loved staying here.


The dorm was dirty. Toilet and beds sheets were dirty. The place is not really close to anything else but a couple of restaurants: no shopping, no market to buy food from etc so u need a car. They also had rented the facilities for a local birthday party, and there was around 30-40 people partying who were not staying at the lodge.


Had a good stay here, free wifi, nice kitchen, good vibe and close to a lot of places like the beach or nightlife. Would stay again.
