    From the photos on the Internet and the description we had the expectation to arrive in a beautiful five star Backpacker. What we found was nothing like that. The common areas were cheaply furnished and especially the kitchen was not welcoming at all. We had a booked a double room that was by far the least cosy hostelroom we have ever been to (and we have been to hostels all around the world). Worst place- especially compared to ANY other accommodation we stayed in while in SA!! Never again
