The community kitchen was very dirty. Broken old fridges with rotten food inside. Pots and Pans, Toaster, Kettle all in poor and filthy condition or not working at all. Fridge in the room was also very dirty with rotten strawberries inside. However in walking distance to shops and restaurants. Nice big plot with monkeys in the trees. Below average backpacker that seems to have seen better days


Staff was not friendly when we arrived. They didn't have internet and couldn't confirm our reservation. They were not very appreciative of our long and stressful journey. Overall, it was a cheap and satisfying place to stay for one night before our safari.

I made the receptionist phone the Manager/Owners upon arrival as I booked a double on-suite private room, and was awarded a Dorm? After making a fuss this was rectified. The fridge in the room was so dirty and over frozen that I had it cleaned out before using it. The double bed and bedding was in a sorry state. The bathroom was riddled with cob webs in the corners. Would I sleep their again? Yes, but I will bring my own bedding. Hostelworld is a great site, I have used it before in Mpumalanga.
