Great team, taking very good care of their guests, take them (almost) all nights to cool places and also help you plan trips. Rooms are nice and tidy, community rooms as well. And at a perfect location also.

"Ask for room facing away from parking lot"
"Views aren't the best, but the top floor is probably the most quiet during the day!"
"We stayed in the Madiba room, which sleeps 4 (this worked well for our family)"
"Rooms on the second floor are only accessible by stairs."
"If you can, get the female dorm!"
