The hostel almost like being at home. The only negative remark I have is Freddy drooling and leaving everything he has on his body on the sofas!! This is the reason that cleanliness didn't get full score.

Great hostel to stay at! The staff is very helpful and welcoming. They make it very easy to plan excursions for the weekends. I booked a wine tour, shark cage diving, garden route tour, and cape point tour all through SaltyCrax and it was so easy!!!

SaltyCrax is incredible. It is literally a home away from home. The people who work there are so friendly and helpful with suggestions of what to do if you need advice. They will book trips for you and help arrange transportation if you need it! They treat all their guests like family! Salties is just a short walk away from... More
