Fairly cheap and straightforward backpackers, no frills. The regular braai is a fun event, a great one to put on, enjoyed that. Dorm rooms are bare and very surprised to find that they lack power sockets. Electricity is one of the 2 things a backpacker needs! Showers good. Staff did not seem hugely informed about local events and more interested in the bar.

Very good service; the staff, including the night one, was more than helpful. I was put in the house next door in a flat with 2 bedrooms, the other bedroom wasn't taken. So I had a kitchen, bathroom and sitting room to myself. And a glorious view towards the sea.
