They are the friendliest people I have been with at a backpackers. This started with staff and filtered down to other guests. The view from the deck is spectacular and direct access to the beach and river is unique.
I found the building cold and dark but it I was there during a cold snap in the middle of winter.

The place is very far from all emnities and there is no public transport once truggle without own car but the staff support was awesome during my struggle

Very Poor”

Receptionist was racist, after my booking was confirmed via booking.com app, I went to check in and was advised that booking.com had made an error on the price listed. My booking was confirmed for R250 but was told the room costed R 750 per night. Would never go to this place again or recommend to anybody unless u are a white person.
