We stayed here for 3 nights and it was very good. We enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere and met some nice people. The staff is very friendly and the communal areas are clean and well furniture. The tents are not so bad for a couple of nights;)

Good place to stay! Beautiful view on the nice garden form the nice and clean dorms. The 'city centre' is right around the corner. No party hardy hostel, but good place to meet new people and nice staff.

We stayed in a private room for two nights. It offered great value for money - in fact, we got much more than we bargained for. The staff is exceptionally friendly and makes sure you have everything you need. Add to this a splendid setting, and you've got a winner! We are keen to go back to spend more time... More

I'll be returning again and again, but feel that a few aspects need to be looked at: 1. Bathrooms: bottom showers need to be services more with regards to the bathroom mats, fixing door locks and fixing towel racks. 2. Wi-Fi: The range needs to be extended as one should be able to access it from the comfort of the... More

We stayed in an ensuite room and the noise from people walking on our ceiling kept us up. We also had no electricity or water on our first morning/day so we weren't able to even take a shower that morning but we were still charged R600 for the night. Breakfast was served cold and with soggy bread (I couldn't finish... More

Hi, I am sorry to hear about your experience as the whole area experienced a power outage from Eskom something out of our control. Our staff were asked to inform all clients so I do apologize if they did not inform you. if you had discussed this before departure we could have come to a compromise and we totally understand...

we stayed in a private room (4 sleeper) with own bathroom and found it very comfortable, neat and clean. Breakfast at the backpackers is definitely worth it. lots of space for the kids to play in a safe and laid back environment.friendly and helpful staff. Only thing I'd add is possibly an additional movie channel (for those bad weather days).... More
