Latest Review

" The shuttle is not FREE. We were charged 60 rand to be drop at the main road near Vickeries a 3 minute drive from the hostel. The staff are not interested and have very little knowledge of the part and surrounding areas. At times it felt like we the guests were intruding on the staff as they wanted to use the facilities. The Park and setting are beautiful, the hostel clean, but there is a problem with security in the dorms. "
