    beautiful garden and lounge area, a separate building beside the rooms. Friendly staff, cute cats, great music. Located directly beside two supermarkets and above a beautiful nice cafe. Very clean, modern washrooms, we would definitely come back. As activities we recommend swimming with seals, great experience, safe and they even make fotos of each group.

    The family room was quite narrow. Luckily, it was a room for 6 people and we were only 5. The water temperature in the showers was either very hot or cold.

    The hostel is close to the main street, has nice common rooms and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

    Wifi didn’t work at all and never had any hot water. Only one extension lead in the room which was difficult to access with people lugar in the way.

    The staff here are amazing! They were super helpful in helping organising an important document I had left before on my trip. The gardens fantastic with a really chilled vibe and very social. Great balcony outside the dorm to hang wet swimwear. Thanks again for an awesome stay!

    The mattresses are rather thin and very soft. I had the impression that my hip was resting on the slatted frame.

    The common area is very comfy, and the nightly fire is quite nice to sit around. Staff was very attentive and helpful.

    Everything. I had to be in and out due to bus, but joined a friend I met at Mossel bay and met a lovely girl who was cycling the coast. Managed to get the robberg track done and the supermarket was next door. Unfortunately it was quite due to riots. My friend liked it so much she had stayed 3 nights even tho she only had little time and did day trips to nature’s valley etc

    The garden - including the camp fire - makes this hostel. Everyone is chilling there, braaing and having a good time. The location in general is also positive: the supermarket (Checkers) is not even a minute walking away and the city centre is on a 3 minute walking distance.

    Stayed in a private room (nr4) next to the stairs. You can hear each step and it was really loud (I would really suggest ear plugs). Parking slot was full at 7pm. Room door doesn't feel safe at all.

    Bar area in the hostel is quit nice. Campfire, hammocks in the garden. Laundry works perfect. Tour offers. Central in the town, close to supermarkets and cafes.
