The staff was very friendly, the location is nice, But it could be a little more cleaner,


The hostel is very noisy. The first floor is an on-going party that can last till wee hours. It would be fair to let everyone coming know about it in advance, as not everyone has to be that much fun oriented.


We first arivede and the office guy was so drunk he didn't even no what was going on. We get to our room and it was so hot. Than to top that off there was a used condom on the window. The places was so dirty by far the worst backpackers I have stayed at and I have stayed in at least 45.

This is a noizy place with very friendly staff.


Dirty, unfriendly, unhelpful!!! This hostel is not full of travellers, it's full of local South African partying every night. The staff invite their friends and party till all hours the following day.!! DONT STAY HERE!!


Sooooooo dirty and very loud music


Even though it was a slow check in process, the gentleman (manager) was extremely efficient and quick to jump on it. Very friendly staff and there was one gentleman in particular (on Sunday & cannot remember his name) who truly made it a special experience as it was my 25th! So for that Thank you. The facilities are nice and clean and for what you pay, you get a great location in the heart of town and a safe environment. Recommended! Thanks Two Oceans! :)
