Awesome view and really nice dormitories :)


Loved it. Would stay here again. The owner, Annie is very helpful and friendly. Everyone was so friendly - at the backpackers and in the village.


I had a very nice time in the Beach House.

Very friendly, welcoming staff. Hostel has amazing views of a beautiful beach. Stayed in a private room, however the dorms were the best in SA so far, spacious, clean, bright and overlooking the beach. A must stay!

Simpel hostel. Location is great, next to the beach, nice view. Breakfast is only possible from 09.00 o'clock, a little bit late when you want to leave early. Room is simpel, bed is small and short.


Beautiful spot, amazing views. A little quite in winter time though.


The location is amazing, and the place has a great vibe. The room was on the basic side, and the kitchen wasn't the best (fridge not very cold, gas stove took some coaxing to work). But it's made up for by the warmth of Annie, and the beautiful beach. A great stop if you're not looking for luxury but want bags of atmosphere.
