I was looking for budget option to visit Kruger and well majority of options weren't budget. If you want just to have a decent sleep this is a good place, they offer good safari options at reasonable price and accommodation is also fine. The owners are helpful and flexible - was there for a weekend only and this was the... More

We stayed for one night in the hostel so we could go to Kruger the next morning. The girl at the reception was very nice. The rooms look nice except for our room which was downstairs, but this was probably the only twin option. Why the low rating? We just didn't really feel welcome. We felt like intruders in a... More

I walked across the border from mozambiqe and this was the first place I found. Well, I was surprised and impressed. The view, as the name suggests is of Kruger, which is incredible. As you sleep you can hear hyenas and hippos, and you can see Impala from the deck. The building is interesting and the owners are very helpful... More

Spent a night here on our way to Mozambique. The place is nice, rooms are clean, staff are kinda friendly and the view into the Kruger from the viewing deck is spectacular. Would definitely stay here again.

Martin, the manager, is the most charming and kindest person. The place is in a wonderful location, the building has got a charm out of common. Unluckily, the service and staff is very insufficient and not enough trained. The whole building: kitchen, rooms and living room needs a deep and detailed cleaning together with a better organisation of the space.... More

Clean basic accommodation and good communal facilities, with a very helpful and friendly reception. The only problem we experienced was the soft uneven mattress on the bed in the downstairs en suite bedroom. We will definitely stay here again.

As a backpacker owner myself, I popped in here just to meet the owner when passing through town, but ended up staying the night because I fell absolutely in love with the place. The owner has put so much effort into the place, and has set an example of what all backpackers should aspire to. The rooms? Beautiful and well... More

We stayed here overnight to break our journey from Mozambique and it was perfect as an overnight stay. The pool was a welcome sight and the rooms were clean and affordable. Dave was very friendly and helpful.
