NIce to experience Afrikaan style night
Friendly staff with tips about how to get around town. Hard working and accommodating! Hostel is part of Hotel Portao Diaz. They share the same pool and public space. Public areas are nicely designed and you can see the bay from the deck area. Hostel rooms are on the ground floor and hotel rooms on the higher floors; similar pricing for hostel and hotel. Highly recommend the breakfast cooked on an open fire. Con is that you cannot really walk into town safely; all staff recommend taking a taxi the short distance to the beach or city center. Uber doesn't function in Mossel Baai.
