I got a double room with a bathroom shared with one other room for 220 rand. With private bath was 260. Great historic looking house and grounds next to a park. Easy walk to the harbor to eat at Kaai 4. Good TV room and self serve beers and sodas. Large braai area for groups.

I stayed in a 6 bedroom dorm it was basic but we got what we paid for. The staff were really helpful and the manager was really cool. We had a supernatural experience though where our beds were moved. The hostel is 150 years old and is really cool.

Beautiful place. The manager is super nice and welcoming. Good rooms. Quiet place. Only 2 minor problems were little ants on bed which was a minor deal and the room was hot at night even with opened window. Would stay again and recommend to other people especially with the price you pay for a good place

Stopped over for a night with a girl friend. The property was beautiful, stylish, safe and charming. We were very comfortable and would have loved to stay another night if we had the time. Mossel Bay is beautiful and we had the most amazing seafood dinner on the waterfront, per the receptionist's recommendation. Will definitely book again next time I'm... More

Very nicely located. The check in was a chaos, the rooms full of ants (1000nds of them)..... during the biker even (buffalo rally) is was an ok accomodation, given that it was for sleeping only. Not the best accomodation I have seen.

We stayed in a double room with shared bathroom for two nights. We weren't expecting much based on some pretty scathing Tripadviser reviews and so were pleasantly surprised to discover that the hostel was actually pretty decent. The staff were friendly, the wifi was free and fast, and there were loads of communal areas to relax in. The dorms, kitchen... More

The hostel is visually nice, that's about it. The staff were unwilling to help us with booking activities and they did not offer to make a call for us to get a shuttle. When we asked if she could call for us she hesitated and said that she would see if she could find a phone for us to use... More

Park House Lodge was the nicest Backpackers we found - a Victorian house of slightly faded character, surrounded by beautiful gardens full of little gems - chameleons, friendly cats, huge koi carp and a beautiful little fountain in the courtyard. The staff, especially Lelani, were charming and helpful. There were a few ants but they were to be found in... More
