The hostel is located close to the sea which you can see if you get one of the sea-facing rooms that also include a private balcony. But be aware: They offer a sea-facing twin room through their website which does not exist in reality. We arrived and were told that the twin room now is a double. Maybe not a problem for a (thin) couple, but definitely for a non-couple that has to share a 140cm mattress with only one blanket. We were a little disappointed about that, but the room itself was nice and tidy. Breakfast was also very good, so taking everything into consideration, this place is fine - but only if you have a car as it is located approx. 7km away from the city center. We stayed here in August (SA off season, but Hermanus peak season due to the whales) and while wandering around the city center, we saw a couple of nice places that were just a little more expensive but looked far better.
