Staff was easy going. Great stop for a night along the panoramic route
This was a solid place to stay for two nights. The location is good - better if you have a rental car (you need one for exploring the Blyde River Canyon area anyway). But if you didn't there are still restaurants and grocery stores in walking distance. The staff was helpful enough. Lockers in the room but you need to bring your own lock.
We have stayed here a few times, and each time has been great. They have a beautiful location that is close to town, and the staff is always very friendly. It's a smaller hostel which gives it a nice homey feel, and their wifi works well which is a plus. We would definitely recommend staying here.
