Very friendly, welcoming backpackers in a quiet, safe neighborhood. It's a bit funny because the sleeping quarters are actually in a series of little storage sheds in the backyard. That said, we were there on a cold, rainy night, and it was perfectly dry and cozy in our room. The bed is comfy and there is a sink in the room; showers and toilets are coed and shared. Nice pool, bar/outdoor hangout area and a very nice kitchen. Pricewise, this was one of the best deals we had in S. Africa for a double room, and we really appreciated how easy it was to hold the room – a quick phone call, no deposit necessary.
Wifi works near the main house (not in the rooms in the back) and costs R20 per hour – honor system for payment. There is secure, gated parking.
One more note, we asked where we could find bobotie in town and the owner said if we'd told her in advance, she would have cooked it for us – now that is personalized backpacker service!
