Even 4 weeks after spending a single night at Kruger View I am still disgusted by this place. First of all, this place was full of dogs. We're definitely people who love dogs, don't get me wrong, but if you can't walk through the kitchen and breakfast area because the entire floor is full of poo and pee...excuse me, than...

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...

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...

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...

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....

Despite the last awesome owner passed away, Martin and his sister have kept the spirit of friendly atmosphere and take care of their customers, do not miss the barbecue in the evening ! We will definitely come back to this place ;).

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.
