    Superb

    One of the most beautiful hostels I stayed in SA. This is a great place to just sit back and relax for the weekend. Maybe read a book by the river, take on of the boats out or take an Uber into PE and get a quick dinner. Its not near the center of PE at all so you will need transportation out of the hostel but its worth it for the chill vibe. The man who ran the hostel even upgraded our group to private rooms because no one else was staying. Great hostel with great hosts.

    Fabulous

    I stayed for two nights, booked a dorm and got a private room :) It's rather quiet and the location and common areas next to the river are beautiful and perfect to calm down. It's far from PE but a nearby train station connects the hostel once or twice a day with the city. Two very cute jack russels and a cat make your day even more fun. Would come back.

    Very Good

    25 Aug 2018
    For such a place to pay R400 for 2 guests was actually below my expectations because: 1. Instead of aylist a double bed there were two joined single beds which kept on moving through out the night. 2. The window pane was banging the whole night as the wind was blowing, disturbing my peace in the moment. 3. Decorations were out of sorts inside the room as if it's a kids room. 4. Besides these low key points the place is situated nicely outside the noisy urban areas. 5. The water view is good
