This was one of the best hostels on our travel. We booked standard doubles, but they gave us en-suites for the price of standard rooms :). The rooms are nice and clean, the food is also good. There's a kitchen there, so you can cook yourself.

Loved our stay here!
Great backpackers with cosy fire, delicious ostrich braii and lovely staff.
Internet facilities are best we saw with Skype cameras and microphones.
Cook your own ostrich egg for breakfast for free in their good kitchens as thats really fun and a good story to tell!
We tried the 54km cycle (as complete bike idiots) and it was wonderful but exhausting! The views were stunning, play with the local children as you go past, check out all the great activities and go with a group of other guests as it adds to the fun!

Room Tip: Try not to be by the main road - quite noisy!

Cosy place and lovely bunch of people, both the team and the guests.
Lots of opportunities for activities in the area, on backpacker's prices (as far as it goes for South Africa).

I'd recommend the 52km cycling downhill the nearby pass (the road that leads to Cango Caves).
And the Ostrich ride.
