Very well located close to beach and all amenities. Basic but clean and well maintained.

There were rooms for each of us. Very spacious. The place also provided all the essentials needed, such as TV, comfy sofa, etc. It also had great surrounding to take a nice walk. We were near to the beach and shops, so it was very convenient. It was clean and comfortable. Was more than what we had expected.

One of the best backpackers Ive visited. Always clean, quiet at evenings except for us. It has the best view over Houtbay harbour, really beautiful, everything you need in one place. A big thank you to everyone there for bearing with us and for everything everyone did for us!!!

We booked a room for three people, double bed and shower and we were booked in a four sleeper, which was corrected the next night. It was at the end one fantastic stay, clean and friendly. We will go back. Herman, Ina and Conrad.
