Pity there is no zero. Slightly Upside, they changed our room to the rooftop inn across across the road which was NASTY!!! The sheets were stained with all sorts of colors, worst nights sleep ever! No one speaks English to help, so we just sucked it up and stayed there. We refused to let them charge us for not staying. Do not stay here


The guesthouse was in a great location, staff was friendly and rooms were clean. Bathrooms are new and clean. The guesthouse has a unique old-style atmosphere, charming view over the river and a bookcase with books to exchange.

We arrived early and they allowed us to leave our bags safely with them until check in. Location was perfect, close to busy areas all directions. The staff were polite, friendly and helpful. The building is old but immaculately maintained, from the entrance way to the three toilet/showers. Secure key fob entrance, and private rooms lock too. Bed and bedding brilliant. The view from the balcony at night is amazing, with a spray of mozzy repellant you can happily chill with a few beers.




Great location with friendly and helpful staff


the sheets were stained. the common bathroom are good and clean. Good location, only few minutes from Jonker street.

Great hostel, great location!


The hostel is in an old building with high ceilings and lot of character; the location right next to the river is great. Would just suggest they take the clothes drying rack off the river-view deck and put some more chairs up there. Could be a much better atmosphere. The rooms smelled really musty and there was some mold in shower plus one of those centipedes. Had to do a Skype call at one point but WiFi only worked for it in kitchen; felt really bad about making noise.
