+ Very comfortable, clean and nicely designed rooms with an eye for details + Great facilities and outdoor place * The hosts (staff) were very friendly but a bit to talkative in my (our) personal opinion. Great for unaccompanied travellers. * Parking is in front of the hostel, which is OK. I always felt safer when the car was somewhere inside the hostel area. * Can't say much about the location since we only spent our last day there, had a rental car and didn't go out in the area.

Unfortunately we had problems with our booking. The host didn't have a confirmation although I had received a confirmation via email. Not sure who's fault that was. We had to change from a 4 and 2 bed room to a 8 bed mixed dorm and a 2 bed room. The host was very friendly and polite in doing this for the dorm price. Nevertheless it was a bit annoying... The hostel itself has a great view from the balcony, a braai facility and a big common room. The bunk beds were a bit unstable.

+ Very nice host who baked fresh muffins for us. WOW! + Very old house in a great old style with extraordinary furniture and decor. You won't see something like this that often. It's like travelling to another time zone. :)
