Reviewed April 5, 2010

The hostel was nice enough. We booked a taxi pick up which the owner Doreen had said was a free service but when our bill arrived, she had actually charged us 3 times the local price of a taxi travelling the same distance. Also, there is a "security guard" on-site who was acting very strangely and stood by the door of our room whilst we were getting dressed. He still wouldnt move when we asked him to. Be warned, this is VERY basic (no hot water or power)

It is unfurtunate that there was misunderstanding, as per a standard e-mail that is sent to all our guest that require transport - the price is not a hidden cost and made available to all. It is a standard charge of 25oo/-. As we are a hostel/ camp lodge and not a Hotel who offers this service for free, we leave our customers always the option. We were not made aware of the behavior of the guard and would have liked to prevent the problem that you 've experienced. As we always advertise the beach africa is a camp lodge, hoStel, camp site, we do provide power, security lights, music etc. yet our clients also experience the traditional and natural living. A Parafin lamp is provided for the room, and a cold shower during the hot and sunny time.

Room Tip: Die Zelte sind am billigsten aber auch nicht so komfortabel wie die etwas teureren "Tree Houses".
