    Craig, the manager and owner were super friendly and helpful. they also can serve you some great local dish for lunch and dinner, which were really tasty :p most of the night they do campfire in the behind of the hostel. the hostel is bit far away from the town but definitely amazing place to look the star, enjoy the fire. they also can organize transportation for Lion's Rock and other places that you must have a look.

    Amazing vibes. Run by a lovely family and some genuinely awesome hosts. Great place to socialize and you'll probably stay "one more night" a few times. Great food options and they will help you organize everything you could possibly want to do in the area. Go to this hostel if you're in the area. Only complaint is no water filter. Thanks Mama and Craig for the hospitality

    We had a great time at Jungle Vista! Mama made us feel welcome from the moment we got there and let us know all about the activities there were in the area. Twenty mins after checking in we were on a safari! Amazing. The sunrise hike is well worth it and you get an incredible view over the landscape. The room we stayed in was a bit hot with the fan not working - which caused a few mosquitos to bite us in the night. The upstairs area is a lot cooler and the bell tents are lush

    The owners treat you like part of their family. Anything you need, they are there. There is always breakfast, lunch and dinner and it is a well organised hostel in terms of the trips they offer. Its an interesting place. The upstairs allows you to sleep outside. Definitely recommend.

    All in all nice atmosphere! The hosts were really nice and helped us with all our trips. The mosquito net was too small for the bed.. Unfortunately our friends got bed bugs while staying in the open dorm.

    I checked in and left after 2 hours. Bathroom full of bugs. Dead bugs on the bed above mine. Scores on atmosphere are low because no one else was there - but it was low season and a common occurrence. Staff were really friendly and there was no animosity towards me when I told therm I wanted to leave.
