    I’ts many natinonal park arounds that YOU need to pay for, Thay are closest neighburs, So for that reason if you go just some meters you need to pay, Litterly Nothing is free around. So just as you know you will probely use more money. You also pay for WiFi at the hostel. But overall Nice place worth to visit this hostel and cape Maclear
