Property Description

We are the backpacker hostel closest to the Sentinel car park and thus the ideal base from which to tackle the Amphitheatre day hike, one of the Drakensberg's most thrilling. From the Sentinel parking area the path takes you to the top of the mountain via the Chain Ladders, where you can enjoy the breath-taking view and also visit Mont-aux-Sources and the top of the Tugela Falls.

Just off the route to the Sentinel car park, turning to Witsieshoek Resort, you can alternatively access many of the attractions of the Kwazulu-Natal's Royal National Park. In a different direction, Golden Gate National Park is also within easy reach and you can continue to Clarens, a lovely village know for the many art galleries and restaurants. A two or three-night stay is ideal to enjoy the attractions of both the Drakensberg and the Maluti Mountains.

We offer quiet, restful accommodation consisting of two double rooms; a triple bedroom ideal for a couple with a child's bed; a family room that sleeps four and lastly a dormitory that sleeps six on three bunk beds that is adjacent to its own ablution block.

We supply natural products such as home-made jams, marmelades and yoghurt as well as fresh produce from our own vegetable garden and orchard and the surrounding farmlands. We also have an exciting and fun bicycle Township Tour, running daily from our Backpackers. Be sure to book this on arrival.

Internet access is free between 19:00 and 07:00 each night and through the weekend. View House Rules

    Both the beautiful souls that run this place, really make you feel like you're at home. They go above and beyond to give you advice about where to eat, where to hike, alternatives if the weather is bad, absolutely everything. There are three dogs that are the most friendly creatures. if you need your dog fix and the facilities are good. You will feel well looked after here, definitely would come back and recommend a night to just relax and chill after a hike.

    The property has everything for a peaceful stay- well maintained kitchen, large common area, clean washrooms. Kestell would be Bruges of SA. Will be inconvenient for travellers without cars as Amphitheater is 65 km far. But the owner is helpful and can guide well.

    Vera was a great host. We had some trouble getting into the property when we first arrived because it was late and her landline was not working, but things were all good after. She helped us arrange our hike (and do not listen to her when she says it is easy or moderate, lol) and had all the necessary maps and information. The place is very authentic and her jams are very yummy, we bought heaps of them!

    Lovely place, jam was amazing and tips for hiking were greatly appreciated. Is a bit remote and quiet but a nice stop off place to rest your head.
