Amazing welcome and such helpful staff/ owners. So many highlights of South Africa not to be missed near this hostel, great food, only clean hostel I found in South Africa with ample charging points that won't electrocute you! Don't miss this part of SA if your backpacking
Amazing location best there is, great food, lots to do, fun night life at hostel bar, nice staff generally, cheap and cheerful, small lockers for valuables, other than that you can walk into anyone's room and it's poor security, loud and drunken and lots of fun! 1 charge point in room of 6 hanging of the wall with wires showing, broken tiles in showers not that clean etc but..great place
I didn't hate the place but I'm not fussy.. only 1 charge point in room of 10, no lockers, nothing works properly, staff are ok nice enough, near to some dodgy night life (Blackpool meets SA) durbans a hole, so much more to see in SA, lots of locals hanging round in hostel, not an amazing party hostel as sold, near to supermarket, it is in safer part of city, an average bed for the night then move on quick! It's so so
Rob the owner is a nice guy, near to the airport if that's what you need, Baz bus picks up here plus Kruger. Cheap food and bar at nearby hotel. Nothing to do at hostel and way out of city. Rob will pick you up from airport for free. No party hostel
I would recommend this hostel whole heatedly to anyone, Annie who runs it is a total legend and rather than a hostel it's like being a guest in her home. You do really need a car or be willing to hitchhike on the big island but for me it was the best island and this is the perfect base. It's very hippy, chilled place, near to wild dolphins, giant manta rays, and great snorkelling. Met such cool people, loved it, thanks Annie and co :)
Great location, staff, first time in Sweden and I loved it was very happy with the hostel. No problems, lockers in room, felt secure. Baggage room could do with being bigger and better organised Is only comment I'd have if I was looking to fault. On the plus staff were lovely, plenty going on, put yourself out there and you'll meet people. Hostels in Europe are often not up to those in many other parts of the world but thisus a pretty good one :)
Ok its not the cleanest, it has very little security BUT...its awsome, I heard of nothing being stolen and I had no issues, the staff were great, the location amazing, its a superb area and sooo much fun to be had. I was on my own and met loads of cool people I am still in touch with, stayed at this hostel for 2 weeks!! I've had better breakfasts, theres a noise curfew, but loads of clubs, pubs and people to go with..loved it, thanks to all the staff I became friends with... try it!!
I had such a good time at this hostel, great bar downstairs and great people, they kick you out in the morning which is a pain as I am a late night, late to rise type of person but hey, I loved it, staff nothing special, no great freebes but good for europe where hostels can be shocking!
