When I visited the place , it was just after KZN floods and there was no water on the establishment. As guests we had to sleep withought taking a bath dur to water disturbance. ”

My recommendation is that the establishment try by all means to make guest as comfortable as possible. At least provide 5 litres of water per guest if there is no water otherwise I had to wait for the following dat to buy water from the supermarket

Ballito Backpackers”

Although this accomodation is very well located, the accomodation looks very different from the pictures on the site. The rooms are tiny and the aircon didn't work properly. Not very safe and had noisy neighbours. Wouldn't recommend.
