It is difficult to rate this hostel because as we arrived, they explaned us that they moove us to an other B&B without asking... The other place was not far away (2minutes by foot). The owner was nice and the room clean and quite nice but no wifi (as it should have been one at the Hippolyte...)

My room hasnt a key. Wifi doesnt work in three days. Sometimes, the hostel looks like abandon. Pool and backyard are amazing.

We spent only 2 nights in Port Elizabeth for visiting the Addo Elephant Park. We haven't seen the city of PE, but heard from other backpackers that it's not worth to stay longer than you have to. Under this circumstances the hostel was a perfect for us.

Wir haben zwar nur eine Nacht in PE verbracht, uns im Hostel aber sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Betten waren bequem und es gab ein Badezimmer mit Dusche direkt am Zimmer. Insgesamt waren wir sehr zufrieden.
