We were pleasantly surprised by the added extras that you would not usually expect from a backpackers - WiFi, tea and coffee, DSTV. The rooms were more than adequate, and clean.

We were not too keen on using communal facilities though we made it work as we had booked and paid for the venue in advance and could not find accommodation for 17 people easily. The manager was very accommodating and friendly, however 4 of us were bitten by what seemed to be bed bugs. my son being the worst and we had to take him through to the doctor in East London (our next stop) for antibiotics and treatment. will certainly not visit that place again.
