We rang the bell at Lodge 96 after a full day of travelling, feeling tired and in need of a hot shower. Matt was fantastic and offered us a dorm room all to ourselves. The room was the one closest to the street, but inside, it was very quiet. The beds were really sturdy and comfortable and there was plenty of storage space. The bathroom was basic but spotless. Matt was happy to recommend places to eat nearby as well as activities in the area.

Quite quiet when we were there, but a really cool little hostel with a very friendly owner who will go well above and beyond to help you with your stay. Really cool town, would especially recommend driving the pass over the Swartberg mountains (doable with a small hire car albeit slowly), which was a recommendation from Matt.

We had a very nice stay in the family room. Hospitable host. Clean and neat place although practically at the main road. Will come back again without hesitating. Host took time to advise on best activities and restaurants.

Very nice property with pool, kitchen and spacious outdoors. Not many places have a cool owner as Matt. Be it recommendations for restaurants or cricket opinions, there is Matt. Very few guests when I went and so felt like owner myself. Highly recommend for a peaceful and comfortable stay.
