          This place is a perfect gateway to the Golden Gate National Park. Our room was clean with a private bathroom. Warm blankets and a small heater. The shared kitchen facility was well equip with everything we needed.

          First off all, this place doesn't wash their bedding, which is a bit disgusting especially when you see stains in the bed that you must sleep in. Secondly, If you want to come to clarens to have fun then you shouldn't stay here, we booked...More

          Besides being very affordable, there is absolutely nothing else to report over this place. Not ideal for a family stay - good for passing by cow boys. Stayed for one night only. Plenty youngsters maintaining a flower power vibe. Friendly people running the place.
