The hostel has great facilities including a big garden with a swimming pool and a bar. We stayed in a private double room with an ensuit. Both was very spacious, clean and comfy. The owner is friendly and helped us to arrange a Taxi to the airport. The locstion of the hostel is not ideal when travelling without a car. The area is a quite residential area, thus no restaurants or supermarkets nearby that could be reached on food apart from a rather shabby bar next to a petrol station down the road

Patrick was great! He arranged for a ride from the airport for me and even had some supplies waiting on the kitchen counter that I had asked if I could find at a store nearby!!!

Patrick is a great host and stayed up till late for my midnight arrival. He was kind enough to show me the entire premises despite me being late. Had a lovely experience. Highly recommended!

Patrick was a very welcoming host and the hostel was exactly what we needed after a 3 week campong tour. The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were great. There was also a homely lounge and nice garden area with pool.

Stayed in one of the private rooms. Everything was clean and functioning. Really nice outside bar and pool. Patrick is great. Location is a bit far from Joburg, but it's not too expensive to Uber out there. It is walking distance to some shops and restaurants. Quick trip to/from the airport. Would definitely stay again.
