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.


We didn't have a good start as they wanted us to pay more for the room than we had booked it for online "beause prices went up". It was only R10 more pp but still.(After some talking we didn't have to pay any extra).Didn't like that there was no room keys for dorms (so everybody can walk in) and no lockers, so only place to store stuff safely is reception. No wifi and rather high rates to use the computer which made planning stuff for our trip difficult. Location, staff and atmosphere are great!


Really nice hostel, stayed ther at a saturday and Enjoyd the "Familybraai" :-)
