Fodor's Review

In a quiet part of the Central neighborhood, this hostel tends to attract mature backpackers who are more interested in culture and adventure activities than partying. Rooms are clean, comfortable, and basic, the communal kitchen is well-appointed, and the managers are friendly and helpful. There's a lovely garden looking over the valley, which has a communal braai (barbecue) area and visiting dassies (a guinea pig–like animal unique to South Africa).
