In Oct. we booked 3 nights on yhe kraal lodge website for dec. 2019.
Got an email saying your booking is sucsessful. Also with the note to send an whats app to dillon , to get confirmation from him Did that. No response. After 2 days i'll send another whats app to ask if he can confirm the stay.

My favorite backpacker hostel so far ! Better than at home, close to what I can imagine of heaven. View on the ocean, dolphins, wales, beautiful beach with nobody except cows, pizza oven, friendly dog and manager, and more. In love with this magic place <3

Room tip: all good but a bedroom by the sea is better, then wake up for sunrise ;)

We arrived for dinner but we were not attended to for seating for at least 10 minutes (we did book a table prior to arriving). We waited whilst service staff passed us by with no regard. Once we were finally seated, we still waited for another 15 to 20 minutes before receiving a menu or even being offered a drink.

The food was the only saving grace however I must mention the service was abysmal. Our waitress refused to give us her name. She did not check on us so we sat without drinks being topped up and we were rushed to finish our 2 course meal even though our mains were delayed as the manager claimed that the kitchen accidentally gave one of our meals to the wrong table.

I am deeply disappointed in the management and service we received. It soured our evening and celebration.

I sincerely hope this experience will never be repeated for any of your future patrons.

The place is perfect and the owner is super friendly and nice. He was very helpful and kind. The village around is cool. It’s pure magic there with a beautiful view. If you have a chance to stay there you should!

This place is a little paradise. The owner, Dillon has gone great lengths to create a really great experience. It is entirely off-the-grid. There are ocean views from the bar. You can sit and watch the dolphins surf and the whales breach in the back yard. You can live off the very cheap and very fresh oysters, crayfish and fish while you are there. Dillon is a great chef and super cool guy.
