NOTE: If a search was made without stipulating the month of occupation the rate shown on the search results page is for the lowest cost month and the least expensive room. Where pricing is "per unit" the Average Price Per Person based on maximum occupancy is used for the price range comparison. A search made for Homes and Villas however will always be based on the full daily rate of the unit irrespective of the number of people the unit sleeps.

Rates are deemed correct at time of publication and may fluctuate depending on supply and demand. Establishments maintain their rates online and any differences should be referred to the Establishment's staff. Quotations once accepted are binding.

A very nice suprise. The money will be put to good use seeing that we are moving soon. Thank you.

More for backpackers. Too basic for me. No fan, no soap or sanitizer. Bathroom door was stuck. Battled to open it. Beds uncomfortable. Definitely not for me. Don't remember seeing on the advert that it is for backpackers. No hand towels for the basin


Need chairs for sitting in the room and need to be informed that there are no towels supplied.

The accommodation was very basic but served its purpose well. All we needed was somewhere to sleepin order to break our journey. The beds were comfortable. Shower in the room was not very appealing. Fortunately we were right next to a bathroom so didn't have to use the shower. Take your own bath plug though. Communal kitchen with microrowave and stove plus fridge. Crockery and cutlery was also supplied.

Sleeping-OUT is proud to be South African
