A very nice place to stay more than one day. I do love the kitchen and the public space. The laundry service is also very good.
There are a lot of information at the backpacker for you to plan your days.
It's just next to uShaka so that it's very convenient to travel around the city by PeopleMover bus.
You can walk to the beach (but avoid doing that alone in the evening).
The internet is quite slow.
