This is a more laid back and quiet hostel. The facility is attractive and comfortable. Every area is spic and span. The beds and bedding are perfect for a good night's rest. The breakfast was a buffet with everything. I felt this hostel was not a bargain but you did get what you paid for, quality. I suppose the high standards on all else had me disappointed that although free, the wifii was unreliable.


Definetely the best hostel we have been to in South Africa so far, everyone was superfriendly and helpful and theres a great breakfast is included in the price!
