... from an array of fresh produce to a selection of cheeses, cold meats, fresh meats and ranges of poultry that we never see in SA. The meat is very expensive but everything else the same as home.

Lovely place to arrive to, friendly, clean and comfortable and very well organised, fun, but with certain rules keeping it strictly out of the full party hostel list.
I only mark this down as our room was moist and leaky roof during the heavy rains.
Free breakfast very good variety and bbq great value. owners friendly and accommodating. Would definitely reccommend.
