As an HI employee, I always am excited to stay in other Hostelling International hostels. And thankfully, 33 South did not disappoint. The staff were extremely friendly, the vibe was hip and local, and everything was a great value. I definitely met a number of people and could not have been more happy with the experience.

The trip back was a tad boring, as we had seen the sights on the way in. Endless banana plantations were observed. I guess it's one of the world's biggest sources of bananas. Too many to eat, so I guess they export most of them. We stopped at a gas station/Wimpy/convenience store along the way after a couple of hours. It felt good to stretch and get some beverages. ...
... try and get the chill out of our bones from the day in the rain. A hot shower also helped and we then headed to dinner. We'd decided to take a cab, because we'd seen that there was an option of having wines which matched the dishes for the 6-course tasting menu which we were planning on having. So since it was our last night in South Africa, we would go all out. We ended up asking at the hotel reception about the cabs out front and they confirmed that they were ...
