Location and Contact


• On the corner of Military Road & New Church Street.
• The backpackers buses from the airport or the bazbus would drop you at the hostel. Otherwise if you come from the train station (Intercape and Greyhound buses drop off there), walk up Rieebok Street, turn left to Long Street, and walk to its other end when you see the 7-11 shop. Turn right walking uphill to the upper traffic light and then turn left again. The hostel is the big yellow house in the middle of the road.
