It had a relatively good atmosphere and good staff. Its not the most comfortable place to be in but it's cheap and decrypt located in order to get taxis to town.


Good hostel if your waiting to head off on a Safari, but far away from the City. cleanest hostel I have ever stayed at and staff very friendly.


Really nice, clean and friendly staff.


1. The showers weren't private - awkward. 2. There were residents who partied till late on both nights - it was extremely loud and we couldn't sleep. Saturday morning at 3:30 am the music was pumped up! 3. The room was clean. 4. The bathrooms were clean. 5. The parking was a problem - couldn't get out on our departure day. We had to find someone to move their car. 6. It was easy to find.
