I arrived very early in the morning, "threw" my stuff in the room (it was ready even at 7am!!) and then went on a full day game drive at Addo Elephant park, came back in the evening and left very early the next morning on the Baz Bus, so I didn't really get to enjoy this cool hostel as much...

Excellent Hostess. Eve is always ready to help and fix things. Good place to stay. Not far from the beach. We were a school group and we were accommodated comfortably and the amenities are very good. Hope the Jacuzzi worked.
