Great Hostel just 15min drive from the airport! The pick-up service for R100 was perfect. Barry and Michael were super nice and friendly. They let me do a late checkout since the room was not busy. I would definitely recommend this place even if you don’t need to be nearby the airport. Oh and they have a nice swimming pool!

I felt super welcomed here. The staff gave me extra chicken stir fry that they had when I got in late, and drove me to my next destination (It was closeby). They were really kind, and it was a good place to stop over for the night.

Pros: Great place to stay if you need to be near the airport or even if you want to chill for a couple of days. Staff is very friendly and they even stop at the supermarket so I could buy food when I was picked up from the airport. Cons: - The hostel was almost empty when I stayed and as a solo traveller I was basically alone. - The 6 bed dorm had only one socket (that I could find), I was lucky that I was the only one there.
