Sani pass top has recently undergone a change in ownership (circa March 2012). The new owners seem to have really jacked up the prices.
The backpackers dorm is located in the village, far away from the views. The toilets are in a separate, unheated, freezing building with plumbing issues. In general, it just seems there has been a lack of effort that doesn't justify the R185 dorm bed.
