Completely recommend. Staff are super friendly and very willing to help out. The rooms are very comfortable and the kitchens and chill areas are very comfortable. Great location, 5 minutes walk to the beach.

The place has an amazing atmosphere. Really enjoyed it there. The people are awesome and they are not afraid to assist when needed. Loved the greenery! The linen had a stain on it and the parking is the best, but overall I will definitely be back.

The surfers lodge is very relaxed atmosphere that is bery welcoming to guests. Lovely and welcoming reception. Our room was not big. No aircon, just little fan to cool room. No coffee in rooms, must go to kitchen that is not been kept clean by guests and house occupants. Otherwise we enjoyed our stay and will visit again.

Me and two other friends really enjoyed staying at Saltycrax. Nice staff, good vibe and close to the beach. A fine kitchen so we could cook what we wanted but Saltycrax also has a dinner for few extra rands. They also are really helpful if you want to do some activities like skydiving, safaris, vine tasting, kloofing or shark diving.

I had good two days stay at Surf Lodge. The place is tidy and neat. It was my first time to sleep in a dormitory and I thought the bunk beds were of great quality and had a pleasant sleep. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I will definitely return.

“They have dorm style rooms and more private rooms. I suggest a private room because it has it's own bathroom but the dorm style rooms are also loads of fun because you get to meet new people!”
