This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Jocelyn is one of the hostel's staff, and she is very nice and good attitude to me from the beginning to the end.

When she cannot pick me up, she cared about my situation and even willing to pay the extra back to me if the taxi price is higher than 200R.

She arranged me a Winelands Tour which is very good. The hostel also can provide nearly all kinds of local tours.

The living condition is just so-so, but to backpackers, I think it is OK.

The location is the middle of the city center, which is very good to anywhere I think.

So, I think it is good and enough good to backpackers.

If you wanna better, I recommend Fountains or St. George, etc.
