"I think its very informative & easy to work with.However maybe payment section needs to be checked as i had a problem trying to make payment by credit card with numerous retry(payment unsucessfull),eventually sucessfull on the 29-3-18.Incidentially checked with my bank & had them on the phone whilst doing the transaction.All was OK on their side.For the record i greatly appreciate the service provided & also getting me the booking at such late notice,especially after my original booking was rejected."

"Pro-tip:

When you have to travel, contact them directly. Explain to them where you have to be and where you want to go... Give them your email and then wait. Next thing your email box will be flooded by a range of options which you can just whittle down according to your needs. Much simpler than trying to do it yourself, especially if you do not know the area where you want to visit.

That's my protocol the next time I use sleeping-out.co.za

"Sleeping-OUT is my first go-to Website, when looking for Accommodation.
I love using this site to find what suits me, amongst their MANY listings. Easy to use, trustworthy and the numerous choices is what appeals to me. The FA initiative is FANTASTIC and I am influenced by whether the establishment is a participant of this initiative or not, when making a booking with Sleeping-OUT. "

"I always enjoy using the Sleeping-OUT website because of its simplicity, informative layout and credibility.
The opportunity to win one's accommodation is the most attractive feature for me and it would be great if more establishments took note of the allure of this initiative and participated. It seems as though the establishments are withdrawing more and more.
I am sure that there are many other people who, like me, browse the 'FA Accommodation', and try to find something suitable amongst those, before looking at any others. "
