My boyfriend and I are taking a slow drive down the garden route. I am from SA and he is from the USA, so wanted to show him the most beatiful places i used to travel with friends while road tripping back home from CPT during varsity breaks. But also wanted to show him the local culture and to experience the "real" SA without all the frills and fuss of 5 star accommodation, thus the backpackers/hostels along the route were chosen.
This place was our first stop, after the exhilarating thrill of bungy jumping, this place was a pleasant surprise. We settled into a comfy and spacious room with our own patio and private bathroom. Although there were a few funny smells and fixtures that were broken or on the frits in the bedroom and bathroom, it still had a very comfortable bed which made up for most things.
The other factor which made this place so special for us was the incredibly friendly manager Mitchell. What a legend, his local friends and him made us feel really welcome and got to enjoy their company at the bar till early hours of the morning.
Overall, if you are a young traveller and enjoy a fun and friendly atmosphere, definitely make this a stop on your garden route tour.
