In the evening there is a fireplace you can sit next to and a bar to enjoy your drinks, very relaxing. The staff is very friendly and was helping us a lot with our plannings....

I just didn't see any manners in dealing with guests. I would not recommend and Cape Agulhas now has better options for people who don't want to spend much. When I posted on my facebook, when I still had my page, I was even offended but people saying they were friends with the owners. You can go and obviously try,...

I stayed here for one night as part of an Earthstompers garden route tour. What a beautiful place; colourful, friendly, homely, with a few dogs to pet! We were lucky enough to eat the food made by the team at the hostel, which was delicious and cooked over the fire. Comfy beds, decent showers, nice atmosphere.

One can feel that the staff there enjoy the place and want others to do so as well. The breakfast is also outstanding, regarding our experience with other...

This place felt like what a real backpackers should feel like. Eclectic and otherworldly. It's great on the inside. Very colourful and inviting. The staff is great too. Very welcoming and warm. The food and sleeping places were also great. I definitely recommend that place if you in that part of the world.

On main road as you go in so very easy to find. Reception very good, quick and painless. Surprised you have to request a towel for the room and pay a deposit. The room while clean was dated and in need of a refurbishment. Likewise the bathroom a little bit of money would be well spent in this area. We...

Stayed for 1 night on my Garden Route road trip. Room was a bit small but clean and cutely designed. Plentiful shower cubicles and toilets. Really loved the quirky bar with all the signs and the tropical vibes and cool atmosphere and cheap prices! We had a braai the night we were there, it was pretty good value and plentiful/...
