“Nice Basic Backpackers - Clean and Good Fun”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2010


Stayed here for 5 days last week. I was pretty wary due to the rate for a room with shower and toilet - R 200.00. However, was pleasantly surprised. Very clean. Shower is literally encased right in the room as is the toilet and basin. Reminds me of Hong Kong and China. But they had plenty of hot water. Mattress was new but they need some new sheets as they kept coming off the bed during the night. Had fridge which would hold plenty of beer etc. as well as TV. Did not use either. Staff and the owner were just great and there is wireless which was handy as was there on biz. They have a very cool Victorian bar on the ground floor which is the centre of activity with very low priced drinks. My mates from CPT had never been there and now going to make it one of their Friday locals. If you are booking try to take room on the top floor as the bar does generate some noise. All in all great value for money but do not expect the Ritz! Also bring your own towel.
