A Sunflower Stop is a home away from home, but more fun and people to meet. I just returned from South Africa yesterday, and I'm already planning to return next year, and of course I'll stay at Sunflower again. No doubt about it. Friendly and helpful staff, great location, excellent place to hang out around the bar and pool with... More

Stayed here after a recommendation. Great location, fantastic facilities and such awesome, friendly staff who even cooked us South African braai on Saturday night! I would not hesitate in recommending this place to anyone.

This place is as backpackers as it gets. Shared toilet facilities with a smell of moist. Swimming pool. Bar that smells green. Had a small private room, deacent enough. Best thing about this place is the kitchen facilities, which is quite good.

I'm sorry to say but the private rooms in bed and breakfasts had much better beds, towels etc! Location and security is excellent but the rooms closer to the road are very noisy and light. Staff were friendly and helpful

Thank you for your review with us :-) Sorry our standards were not as high as the standards of a bed and breakfast establishment... it's a good thing we call ourselves a backpackers :-) But we are always trying to improve. More

The staff are very friendly and the facilities are very good. The kitchen are has just had a major refurbishment and looks fab. Kitchen can look a bit untidy... More

We stayed here with some friends for 2 nights, the dorm was clean and spacious. There were enough showers and toilets and they were also nice and clean. Another plus was the garden with pool to chill out after a warm day. Because we were with a big group it almost felt like our own house and we had a... More

I stayed with the Sunflower Stop for 1 week whilst I was doing a diving course down the road, so it was extremely convenient for me. I was a girl travelling on my own, but when I first arrived I couldn't have asked for a better welcoming: very friendly and they made me feel part of group instantly. As the... More
