Graskop itself is a little tired and past its prime, which was how we felt about this hostel. The staff was very helpful, the kitchen was well-stocked and the rooms were kept clean, but there wasn't really anything special about this hostel, and town felt a bit dead. Great base for hiking around the area (God's Window, Blyde River Canyon, etc.) but a bit of a drag if it's a raining. For us it was a good stopover on the way to Kruger Park.


Very good accommodation value for money

We stayed there three nights, one in a room, another in a tent and the last one in the rondavel... All was great and comparing to other places we have stayed in for a good price. Staff and especially Melinda were really nice and helpful! Just, one night we weren't lucky and there was a dutch group that made a big noise til 3 am... Don't know if staff could do anything to stop it... Anyway, we would definitely recommend it for a stay.

The location at the start of the Panoramic drive was key. Great value for the money
