Excellent hostel, only complaint is that they had quite a relaxed attitude to the providing the shuttle from Malandelas at the the time we had agreed so I ended up having to stay at Malandelas on my first night having been waiting in the dark in the car park for half an hour. Obviously not an issue if you have your own transport but i would recommend just getting a taxi to take you the whole way to avoid this!


How original to wake up in the middle of a group of zebras !
