We had a fantastic stay at this place, due to the friendly, helpful staff. Decor is an eclectic collection of memorabilia but it is homely & the food is excellent tasting and value for the money. The place has a bar with very reasonable priced drinks. The owner, Dave was very knowledgeable on Kruger. We did a 3day/2night tour with... More

My daughter and did a safari with Flexi Tours, and decided to stay at the Old Vic, and it was the best move we could have done. It has a really homey feel, kind of a mix between a cottage in the woods and Grandma's house. Lots of rooms and a kitchen where you can prepare your own meals. We... More

A fantastic hostel with fantastic staff and facilities. One of, if not the best, hostel atmospheres I have yet to experience. I hope to visit again one day, hopefully with a better rugby result next time. Thanks again Dave and everyone else at the Old Vic! Highly recommended.

Awesome place! Really really friendly service. Dave took care of our every need and an awesome person to talk to with a great sense of humour. He arranged our safari too for a very reasonable price with a very experienced tour guide, ted. It was our best experience in South Africa. The rooms are cozy and a lot of places... More

I was expecting something very basic built to backpackers. Our surprise was that we were assigned a very pleasant apartment with airconditioning and a private large bathroom with a beautiful river view. The service was like we were home. A delicious dinner was prepared on our request. The property is located at a very nice neighborhood. We definitevely recommend it!

Stayed here before heading in to Kruger. Because we had big teenage kids, the manager kindly upgraded us to a larger room at no cost. The place has rooms hidden amongst plants on lots of different levels- our room had a large balcony and a small back courtyard next to a large aviary which we loved. Meal in the evening... More

My husband and I had the most wonderful experience here: it was our introduction to South Africa, and we felt totally cared for from the first e-mail contact with Dave through the end of our 1-week stay. Dave arranged everything: our own spacious wooden lodge with balcony overlooking the luscious greenery, with walkway to the breakfast/reception area, passing by the... More

We stayed only one night at the Old Vic. We had a self-catering unit which was price/quality value one of the worst we had during our 4-weeks holiday in South-Africa.
