This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The hostel is very unique. It is located close to an African village and the Blyde River Canyon. The street to the hostel is horrible. The room, we stayed in, was clean with a nice and clean bathroom. The best thing about the hostel, however, is the host, Heston. He is a very nice and helpful guy, who loves to play the guitar.
If you are not scared to stay in the bush, then you should go and visit Heston.
