I stayed here with friends in July 2014. The location and local people were great and welcoming with lots of local activities in the immediate surrounding area. The place was very peaceful, with clean rooms and bathrooms. Unfortunately, the staff were very unhelpful with poor and inconsistent advice on the local area. Trying to get any information was uncomfortable and very difficult. The restaurant had 'apparent' opening times but trying to order food or even a coffee was always met with moaning and disgust. The owner is a very scary gentleman with anger issues who awoke us two days in a row calling for his gun to fight off baboons. He was also very rude to his own staff in front of guests which we found extremely inappropriate (and often wildly unjustified). An intimidating man. The hostel has potential but staff let it down. The only saving grace was Roger who was kind, warm and welcoming (and sane). Without him, I would label the staff as universally unhelpful.
