The hostel is located pretty close to everything you'd want in Mossel Bay - close to the point (ocean views, food, spectacular lighthouse) and town (there are a few good cafes within a few blocks). This was the best part of the place.
The actual hostel though is a bit loud (the walls seem quite thin). And our room smelled like urine - it was clean, but there must be some sewage pipe or something close by making the stay somewhat unpleasent. We were also disappointed that the off street parking was only for guesthouse customers and not for the backpackers.
