I do not recommend this hostel, because the staff is keen to earn extra money on guests. e.g. they order a taxi and agree with the driver on a higher price which includes a commission for themselves the prices for tours are intransparent - no clear indication or possibilty to compare different offers: staff arranges a tour and asks the (private) tour guide for a high commission. - the tour was for SA standards extraordinarily expensive (550Rand per person for a tour of half a day)
