                                          We have had a mixed bag of experiences at backpackers establishments. We weren't sure what to expect, but we were unreservedly impressed and delighted by this little gem of a place! Look no further for accommodation in Oudtshoorn.

                                          We were pleasantly surprised by the added extras that you would not usually expect from a backpackers - WiFi, tea and coffee, DSTV. The rooms were more than adequate, and clean.
