Matthew and Vicky are wonderful people, providing a comfortable stay for travellers, but also doing good things in their community to support those in need (including domestic animals). The views from their multiple decks are impressive and there is plenty of wood for the many fire pits if it is chilly. The road in is a bit of a challenge right now but don't let it deter you, it is worth the effort and road maintenance was underway while we were there to make it better.
Helpful staff and a great location for exploring the Cape by car or walking down to Kalk Bay.
Disappointed, but not sure whether that should be directed towards Hostelworld or Berkenhaus. We booked 2 nights thru HW based on your details of "Free WiFi". There was nothing "free" at all, in fact their Internet rates were outrageous....$5 / hour. If I had bailed on my reservation because of this I still would have been out 10% on 2 nights due to the $ you captured up front. I realize that Hostels may change their offerings from time to time but their host told me it was never "free".
Rot and his team do an excellent job of making every guest feel comfortable. Their day tour of the country side was very good. Would definitely recommend.
John and his staff were extremely helpful and pleasant making our stay there very enjoyable. The location is also very good, away from the noise at night but only a few minutes walk to the Old Market and Pub Street. I would highly recommend.
Hidden away from the noise and bustle but still close to the Skytrain. Nice, clean rooms. Would stay here again.
Good location and friendly staff. Could use some minor, inexpensive touch-ups.
Great staff and a fun atmosphere.
Not easy to find but a treat once you arrive. Our hostess was very helpful and works hard to make everyone feel at home.
Great staff and activities every night in the bar. Very social.
Beautiful, clean rooms, run by nice people.
walls and windows thin - heard all the other guests. Noise from outside easily heard.
Liked it so much we have returned for another stay.
Old, needed some room renovations. noisy. sheets extremely thin.
Room without a window was stuffy but overall a good experiece.
A litle pricey for the condition of this hostal. Renovations appear to be underway to bring it back to where it should be
Friendly and helpful staff. Enjoyed our stay there.
