  • Loved the veranda for chilling outside by the river in the evenings, hostel generally pretty clean and I liked that we could bring drinks over from the adjoined cafe. Our room did have a strange smell, but not really an issue as it was more of a chemical/damp smell than anything too sinister. Wifi good, location good for jonker street etc. Would recommend for the price!

  • The hostel itself is nice and clean, but has already seen better days. The staff only comes over when needed. There is a balcony from where you have a great view on the river.

  • Superb!! Great value for your money. The location is one of the best, as it is right by the river. I just wish the locks on the doors were better. I would have felt better storing my valuables there if they were. But super quaint place, no loud residents.
