Liked: Great people to meet, really close to Addo Elephant Park.

Disliked: It can get noisy at night because there are a lot of people staying there and you never know if you've got people who have a barbecue right next to your window all night long...

Liked: Close to addo

Disliked: Felt that staff was annoyed that we brought our own food along and that we should have eaten in the bar. We booked an ensuite, had a shower in the room but no toilet. Had to use one outside... Felt a bit forced to book and addo tour through the backpacker

Hi sandra
A you can see when you booked you did not book an en suite room but a private room. We put you into a room that has its own shower and basin as a free upgrade.
As to the bringing your own food I dont see how the staff would have been annoyed as we have a full self catering Kitchen for all to use.
