Well, it is not a bad place to stay, if you know you want to hang out in this area. At least this place is remote and you won't see many homeless. Take Guatrain to Rosebank and get a Uber here with R30. But the dorm has 12-14 beds in a big loft, which does not get cleaned well often (1-2 a week according to my observation) They have all day breakfast but usually stop making them in the afternoon, which also let me down.


The wireless doesn't work in the rooms. The staff were super helpful and knowledgable, especially connecting us with our safari company who were late picking us up. The avocado/bacon toast is delish!
