Liked: The staff at sunflower stop are fantastic!! They go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your stay....they helped us with everything like booking tours and just general advice on what to do. Our room was in a quiet part of the hostel which was nice, it was one of the smaller rooms but still had plenty of space. It was easy to get everywhere from here, a quick walk to the waterfront and a cheap taxi ride everywhere else. Very secure and our room had a safe which we could choose a combination for. Kitchen facilities were great we cooked most nights....the braai night was awesome and the staff cooked it all for us! Would definitely stay here again and recommend it highly to everybody!

Liked: Safe and secure

Disliked: It is on a main street, very loud and hard to sleep at night. Bunker beds are very close to each other, there is aprox. 3feet between the beds, you literally need to roll out to get out of the lower bed. The pool looked dirty and was small, different than the pic on the web.
