This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Little like entering Fort Knox, well it is South Africa. Staff very friendly and helpful, lovely dog. Facilities adequate. I would not go as far as saying they were 5 star, - comfortable and clean.
Bar/restaurant area spoilt by smoking, this included the female owner who did not go out of her way to be friendly to us, unlike her employees, who were delightful, one in particular who hand wrote out her recipe for the meal we ate that evening.
I would recommend this hostel but with reservations.
