    The way they have the best set up, with a spacious "pod-like" area with a screen, I felt like I had a private room. It was so nice. And the shower was to die for. Social hostel, with the walking town about a ten minute walk away.

    Excellent staff, excellent accommodations, excellent security! Anytime I had a question the staff answered it promptly and if they didn't know they were immediately on the computer getting answers for me. The best hostel experience I have ever had anywhere in the world!

    Super helpful staff- made phone calls to local bus company to help me figure out schedule! Very clean and modern looking space. Capsule style beds each have personal reading light and electrical outlet and lockers underneath are big enough for a large backpack or suitcase. Lots of spaces indoors and outdoors to work on a laptop or hang out. Kitchen is clean but very minimal - refrigerator/cupboards are inside while stove burners are outside on the patio down the hall (can't cook when it rains!)

    Fantastic place! Stay here - sparkling clean, comfy beds with privacy curtain, own light and plug, very nice atmosphere... Has a café where locals go also, very close to the beach and 15min walking to the centre. I would totally recommend.

    Overall a really pleasant stay at Kumba. It’s a cafe with a hostel side so it has everything you need and great coffee! Staff were really lovely, the place was spotlessly clean and it was really nice having a little pod to sleep in. There were a lot of youngish locals that hung out and studied in the cafe giving it quite a unique vibe.

    Kumba is a new hostel with nice facilities. I like the pod style beds and the bathrooms are clean. Most of the staff members are nice but a couple were a little condescending when you asked them questions

    Very Good

    Overall the hostel was good and value for money. The comunal areas and cafe were nice and had a good vibe good for meeting other travellers. The dorm rooms have little roller blinds for privacy and lockers for luggage. My female only dorm didn't have a lock on the door and on two seperate occasions a man walked unannounced into the room. Also the bathroom door kept sticking and the noise from the cafe and the kitchen travelled quite far. There were several supermarkets and cafes close by.
