fake hippy place.
when i was there people were robbed in the room and i've felt very insecure, even if the staff pretend to be backpackers friendly
Really a nice place to stay and genuinly recommended.
The rooms look new, are very spacious and have little balconies.
I struggled to find the place as it is on a 'pedestrian' river street, right at the top where there is almost no more activity. Once I found it, it was easy to navigate from there and the place is actually quite central.
I did not like the shower in the room (don't like showering over a toilet), but I found a lovely shower on the second floor which was big and clean.
I joined the Magnolian braai on the Sat, which was maybe a bit over-priced but was a good way to meet all the other people at the hostel.
I didn't try any other food there, but the breakfasts looked good.
All in all - a definite winner.
