This was a great place, refreshing to have the atmosphere of a real hostel after some boring places in Cape Town - very staff, plenty of places to chill, free brews, and toast in the morning.
The white water rafting organised via their activities list is a bit dodgy though.

This was the absolutely best backpackers we've stayed in in SA. The staff was friendly, the building just beautiful and you could easily pay with your credit card. Wifi was good enough. The braai they make is enough to make me wanna return. Again, again and again.

We stayed in the little cottage around the corner: 2 rooms + kitchenette + sitting area, so you (almost) have your own holiday home at a bargain price. Good braai in the main house. Super helpful owners/staff (they arranged all our tours in a minimum of time). We loved our stay, txs all!

Clean rooms, good breakfast and really relaxed atmosphere. Unfortunately we stayed only one night, but this backpackers is definitely a place to be comfortable. We met nice people and the stuff was friendly to help with everything. Free Wifi completes the impession.

Stayed: August 2013, travelled with friends
