On arrival there were no lights outside, it was dark and the gate was locked. Could not get any assistance yet it was around 21h00. I therefore had to look for an alternative accommodation to spend the night

At old vic's you suddenly feel so welcome and as if you've been there before. The staff makes you feel like you are apart of the family. They are all so nice and make sure you have everything you need all the time. You feel very safe because they keep gate closed at all times and will open it for... More

Crazy Dave hooked us up! He has incredible connections all over Nelspruit for transport, activities, safaris and other adventures. Dave is like a dad for all of the weary travelers who happen underneath his roof. I would strongly reccomend this hostel for anyone looking for a restful home base in Nelspruit, but are also looking for community and adventure.

You must check this place out when you go to Nelspruit. It's an incredibly cozy atmosphere with many areas to hide from your friends. Dave and Bella are some of the most caring/beautiful people you will ever meet.

Bella and Dave are great. The place is wonderful and we were cared for well. Their driver Ben is also very accommodating and super nice if you don't have your own transportation. This is one of the coolest inns I've stayed at. Would absolutely come back.

Nelspruit itself is not a place I would recommend stopping, but it is convenient if you are headed into Kruger. Vic's was a comfortable enough place with secure parking, a good bar and convenient location to local food and park information. We had a room away from the crowd (and the bar), which I would recommend. The staff (in particular... More

I booked for 3 nights, ended up leaving the second day. I booked a cabin and a room. The rooms are full of insects, it smells like cat piss- too many house pets running around, furniture are out dated, the bathrooms not inviting at all- paint peeling- holes in the tub. Needs updating asap. Pool is nasty- dirty looks like... More
