Gardens, Cakes & Space!

Gardens were very pretty and spacious perfect for finishing a trashy Katie Price "novel" or taking photos of the flora, fauna or view. Cakes? The Ritz is a stones throw away from THE BEST bakery, super cheap, super fresh, just super! The space relates to the room we had, it was perfect for the two of us to pack, re-pack, pack for safari, un-pack, give up and start all over again. Also the storage space for leaving bags when we went off on safari was very roomy and very secure.

Easy to meet people with a very sociable common area. Staff are excellent and know (and remember) everyone's name from the moment you arrive. They have plenty of advice and tours for things to do. The hostel is a 5 min (very safe) walk from two shopping centres with all the amenities you could want (supermarket, pharmacy, cinema, bakery for great breakfast and much more!).
