5 star service in a hostel. If I really have to find something that could be improved is to add a bit more character for the rooms but the communal bar area makes up for this.

Dear Zolta Thank you so much for your wonderful review of Nothando, we really appreciate it that you took the time out to write a review. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your travels. Kindest regards The Nothando Team


Good location close to the main streeet. Spacious dorm, with comfortable beds, its door opens durectly in the garden. Well equipped kitchen, family atmosphere. 15 minutes walking to the beautiful beach.


A centrally located hostel with superb facilities and fantastic rooms. More like a good quality motel than a hostel. Breakfast was good value and the staff were very helpful. The only thing it could improve on was a hostel 'atmosphere' as everyone seemed to be very quiet and there was not much interaction but that may be down to the other guests at the time of our visit.
