    Had a disaster of a day on arriving in Mossel Bay to find my booking from another OTA was a s**m. Showed up at Mile Crunchers at 9pm and they couldn’t have been nicer. After I showered I asked if they sell beer, unfortunately they didn’t. Next second I had a knock on my door and I was offered 2 beers for free from the owner. Great touch as I ended up staying 4 nights!

    We really enjoyed the stay. The staff is very nice and flexible. The Location is easy to find with a Supermarket next to it - just next to the sea. Very affordable and easy but delicious breakfast.

    This was a cool hostel with what seemed to be an interesting atmosphere. The staff were friendly and open to helping. We went at a slow time, so there were only two other guests in the hostel, which was strange, but overall it was nice. I’d love to see it full sometime!

    Stayed here for a few nights, really enjoyed our time. Hostel had a cool set up, nice big rooms, sweet common area to hang out in. Staff was super friendly, gave us suggestions and tips for the area. Was quiet when we were there but we still met some nice people. We were surfing, it is about a 10 minute drive to the main beach, or a few minutes to the closer point break. There is a little train you can take if you don’t have a car. :)

    Great cosy hostel which is excellent for meeting other travellers and has the most helpful staff I’ve came across on my travels so far! They go above and beyond to help you on your travels. Good location just a short 10 minute walk to the beach or good restaurants. Would stay again.

    Well located hostel and friendly staff however cleanliness did not live up to expectations. A very ordinary night's rest as the beds had bed bugs. Great hostel otherwise.

    Location is quite far out from the main beach point, would need a car to stay here and review the rest of the bay
