Very comfortable place in the middle of Oustshoorn. Prices reasonable, nice pool area with a really relaxed and chilled vibe. The cottage is nice, even though a little bit more light would have been welcome. Breakfast is light and simple but precisely how we like it, and can be made available early in the day (6am). Nice advice from owner...

We stayed at this backpackers hotel. The rooms there are nice and convenient. There are 3 bathrooms and toilets which are all clean. A kitchen is available for cooking. You can have your clothes cleaned there at a reasonable price

We had a twin room for R 520,-, which was even discounted. Too small!! We had to put the cloth rack outside to put our bags at the floor. Too narrow to go to the bathroom. fridge makes a lot of noice. difficult to ventilate.

Dear Sir, All opinions are welcomed. Yours didn't surprise us, as we did not expect to satisfy you. In our correspondence even before your arrival, you changed the number of rooms, argued about prices and changed your date. We informed you that we'll have to separate a queen sized bed for you in order to have singles. You have indeed...

We recently stayed in the Family Unit/cottage. Extremely small room. I would not recommend this for a family. Counter top table kept upright with burnt wooden log and bricks. Noises of other guests late at night and early morning were very disturbing. Rats crawling around in the ceiling. I hardly slept. Definitely not worth the amount of money we paid.

So sorry to hear about your tough experience! About the 'rats', I can put your mind at ease: We have a shading cloth stretched over the roof of the unit, to make it somewhat cooler. A securing string became undone and caused for the flapping sound and caused for twigs to be blown about a narrow space. The burnt wooden...

the lodge was nice, the rooms were okay, nothing special. classic backpackers lodge. one of the shared bathrooms could unfortunately not be locked, but another one was available when i wanted to shower, so not a problem. only negative thing: one of the breakfast tables was directly in front of our window, so sleeping in wasnt an option.

We arrived at about midday and we're allowed to check in early which was great. The lodge is in a good location and the grounds are well thought out and nice for relaxing in. The pool and communal areas were all very clean and we had access to logs to use on the varies fire pits. Our private double room...
