Accommodation varies from dorm rooms to private and en-suite bedrooms, the rooms are noisy due to an in house function venue below the rooms. Great meals are also provided from as little as R30.00 per meal. We also have our own liquor outlet on-site offering over fifty great South African wines, from less than R20.00.

Seems more like a very old hotel. No reception, everything is managed from the old smoky bar downstairs. No communal kitchen, no lounge, no real place to meet people. Shouldn't be called a backpackers.

We had a lot of fun here. It was not bad at all and the view is awesome from the room we stayed in. The staff were awesome and really helpful. I would surely recommend it for those travelling on a budget. Go for it, for real.
