I enjoyed about relax atmosphere and friendly staff, very easy to talk just like to a friend and ask south african life. Special thanks to Azi teaching to me how to make braai, southafrican barbeque:) Hostel has very good location.

Very nice location, close to everything. Gate at the offsite location can close unexpectedly so be careful!

attention, si votre chambre donne sur la cour, le bar de l'auberge est très bruyant le week end! sinon rien à signaler, séjour agréable!

Good spot for a few days on the Garden Route. Friendly welcome. Some misunderstandings with the booking, but these eventually were resolved to our satisfaction. Great self-catering facilities including hot drinks and a cool bar. We would stay here again.
