I have stayed at backpackers before and the term shared bathroom means a bathroom shared with others normally in the passage. We had to share a bathroom that was inside someones room where we had to enter someones room and walked in on someone getting dressed in order to use the bathroom. the manager was not very helpfull and said he has a no refund policy.

We had an awesome stay. The rooms were great,  comfortable clean beds,  the kitchen had everything we needed,  the only down side was that there was no curtain in the bathroom and that made it difficult to take a shower without anyone seeing you.Besides that,  our stay was totally amazing and very affordable . I would totally recommend everyone to stay there.

unfriendly reception,no bato phele, not to mention the rude lady at reception, not willing to help and listen to her quests, reception not the place for her, book in Sunday, Monday midday, break in at our place, notwithstanding security gates, 2 laptops,backpack and Nike tekkies stolen, Awful smell in bathroom every time toilette has been used, due to pipes not fixed properly. A definite no, not ever again. (02 April 2014)
