          I stayed here the weekend the Comrades Race was going on, so I guess the hostel was fuller than usual, but still... music and yelling was never-ending into the morning... The hostel is not very clean (not the cleaning staff's fault, it's kind of run...More

          Stayed one night in the dorm room with my girlfriend before moving on. Beds were comfortable, staff were incredible and helpful. Had no worries about our safety or safety of our stuff. All in all an amazing environment with friendly people

          The place is really well situated near a busy Street. Keys and vacca matta is literally 2 min walk away. The hostel was busy enough and good value for money. The bathroom facilities can do with some work though.
