Old Vic was included in my study abroad plans and I'm so happy I got to stay here. I love the art, the bar area, the poolside, the random animals, and Crazy Dave and Bella are the sweetest hosts ever.

We stayed there for one night and the room was very good, clean, worm, big and with a good bathroom as well. The price included breakfast and you have a kitchen at your disposal completely useless. It's true as it has been referred in other review that they don't have a secure system to pay so the owners force you... More

Secondly we take a refundable deposit for keys,remotes as we have lost/ stolen many in the past... More

I only stayed one night at the Old Vic, but I would highly recommend it anyone. It's cozy and clean, very safe and the staff will make you feel right at home. Great place to relax and enjoy yourself before heading out on a safari adventure!

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.

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!
