The communal kitchen area was also always spotless. The location of the guesthouse is great, as its a quick walk to the myciti bus stop which takes you pretty much anywhere...

I was really lucky to find availability in this guest house during New Year's, since the whole city seemed to be fully booked. I could not have found a better place to stay. I spent two nights here, in a very cosy room with my own bathroom. The location was excellent, close to the My Citi - tourist bus route....

I spent three weeknights here, and my expectations were greatly exceeded. My room was spacious, clean, secure, and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was nice and clean, and the shower was especially good. By mistake, I'd booked for two people even though I was traveling alone. Still, I thought the price was extremely fair so I was happy...
