    I stayed for 2 nights in November 2016- dorm room. Comfortable, clean and close to the main street. Friendly people, excellent service. Good value for money. Fridge in room is a great bonus. Would definitely recommend.

    Amakaya Backpackers was a nice place to stay. It has a good location to walk to the city center and drive down to the beach. The room we had was equipped with a TV set and the kitchen and bathroom facilities were very close by.

    If you are looking for very very basic this will be fine for you. Overnight stay only. Only positive is that it's very close to town and if you need to be close to the taxi rank it's over the road from it.
