First of all, this budget accomodation is fine for what you pay for. My bad review is definitely regarding the staff and the management. The night we were there, the guests next to our room got robbed and the robbers tried to break-in into our room too (If someone knocks on your door during the night telling you it's management, NEVER open. This is common practice in South Africa), but we didn't open the door. After that tough, we put the bed in front of the door and we were in shock. We got stuck in our room for 2 1/2 hours without anybody from staff telling us what had happen or if we could get out. After this time, we finally decided by ourselves to come out, finding the staff downstairs waiting for the police. Moreover, 4 hours after the break-in, the management wasn't even on site (neither was the police). We left this place with a bitter-sweet feeling principaly because the situation wasn't handled at all by the backpackers.
