I am quite satisfied for choosing this hostel and staying there during my South Africa tour. The staff was nice and friendly. When I reached there in late night, they could not get my online booking confirmation; but still they allow me to stay. I had not South African currency with me and the exchange centres were closed. So, they adjusted by taking USD from me. There was facility of tea / coffee and there was a kitchen to cook ourselves by bringing food stuff from market.
