“We'll priced basic accomodation”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

Half the units face the river, and this is one of the few places in the world where you can have a hippo grazing on your lawn. The vervet monkeys will get into the unit if you do not close all windows, and they steal and eat everything they see.

The units have two bedrooms upstairs ( One with a double bed, and one with two single beds). Downstairs is an open plan kitchen with a lounge. The furnishing is basic, but sufficient. The kitchen has all the basics, if you decide to cook for yourself. I have stayed here numerous times (work and holiday) and have always found the place spotless.

Stokkiesdraai is within walking distance of the bank, restaurants, 3 ATMs, pharmacy and various other shops. There is no air conditioning, but the upstairs rooms have very strong fans to cool the rooms. There is a safe in the one bedroom, but it is too small for a laptop. The tv has very good reception, with 4 or 5 channels.

Stokkiesdraai is basic, but clean with extremely helpful staff members. I have stayed here many times, and it really becomes cheap if you have 4 - 6 people staying over. I will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a unit facing the river/lake

Reviewed 10 December 2013

The hostel looked very oldfashion, dark, not a nice atmosphere. The communication was not very good, the told us they didn't get the message from hostelbookers about our stay. (this can happen of course, but they also didn;t respond to another mail we had send)
When we entered the room, we saw a cockroach running over the beds... (!) and another dead insect on the floor and another dead cockroach in the closet.
When we told the owner, she just laughed it away by telling that it was normal in this area/climate. (but still they started spraying with anti-insect-spray) and gave u another room (wich also contained a dead cockroach).
No WiFi, you moust pay everything in avance, when you move your bed like 1 cm, the owner starts bouncing your floor with a stick from her room.. (it is not permitted to move any furniture)...
I think it was a very nice place 30 years ago, but those days are gone.

Room Tip: Check the room before you pay!!!
