I loved it. As soon as you walk in you see all the colours and feel the hippie vibe. All the men working there were unbelievably kind and helpful and funny. Had the best time. The room was lovely and the beds spacious.

This was a last minute choice as my regular guesthouse was full for the night but what a pleasant surprise.

We had such a good time. We arrived late from Jeffreys bay so we enjoyed a drink in the bar. The craft beer is supposed to be good! The staff and dogs made a great atmosphere for us. Warm and welcoming staff. Cape Agulhas is really beautiful.

Was travelling with my girlfriend and loved the hostel, walked it into the hostel and was welcomed by a loving crew. Had their local beer as well as got to share stories at the bar with the manager plus the bartenders, i'd recommend the hostel to anyone who's looking to go to a small but good town.

The place has a very 70's/hippies look and vibe, and the owner/staff are very friendly (and our kids loved Lava the dog!). You can stay here as a single in a room with others, or...
