We stayed there in one of their double rooms for one night. The beach and the river mouth are within walking distance, the room was ok, the bathroom was more than ok, probably even the best shower we had in South Africa.
Accommodation is simple, but there is everything you might need. A restaurant ranging between good and original is within walking distance, we used the big and well equipped kitchen instead. Communal facilities (dining room, patio etc.) are very nice and comfortable, free wifi. We also had a look at one of the dorms, it looked above-average.
We did not hear the train mentioned in one of the reviews but the N2 in the distance. Was not loud enough to bother us though. It takes about 20 minutes to get to Mossel Bay by car.
The hosts, Philip and his mother Julia, were not exactly our type but since we were not really their target group (rather bagpackers) that is ok. They seemed very helpful and willing to provide their guests with information and they were very friendly, no doubt about that.
It sure was not the most stylish or atmospheric accommodation we had, but if you are travelling on a budget or you want to have something more basic than usual to cut back your travel expenses I can clearly recommend it.
