1   Dont bother There is no up keep to the property, the fridges shock people when you try open them, the food is terrible and they only have about 10% of what on the actual menu, the toilets are dirty, All the photos of bomvu on the website are old, it is so rundown, I spent 9 days there and wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.  , age 28, SA ()
5   Best Friendliest and Welcoming Hostel I've ever stayed at From the moment I arrived in coffee bay, the staff were accommodating, friendly and fun to hang around with. The Place was clean well stocked and had every amenity that i needed. The drum circle was highly entertaining and the live music beat to your soul. In my book truly nothing beats Bomve.  , South Africa ()
1   Worst Backpackers in SA! Bomvu was completely overbooked over New Years 2011, they cramped people right next to the "Trance Party" with no shade, no electricity, no bathrooms -- only longdrops. We refused to camp there and were placed in the local school, where only 4x4's could drive up. We had no kitchen facilities, no bathrooms -- again only longdrops. Totally unacceptable for R80 per night! Later we were told to pay extra for the school's electricity and for parking on the school grounds. Bomvu management decided to close the bar at 9pm on New Years eve so that people would join the trance party for R250 extra. All money and no customer satisfaction!  ()
1   Bad management We spent 2 nights living in mud because they leveled some ground and called it a campsite. Then we squatted another 2 nights at the local school and used the long drops. The management was high all the time and double booked people. We had some problems trying to find someone who spoke proper english. Look, we had a super bad time because of the weather, but Bomvu didn't care that people had no place to sleep/camp, they just wanted money.  , South Africa ()
