South Africa

The hostel is a transition hostel for guests mainly flying in and out of Sri Lanka, so it is quite quiet. You will have a lot of free time, as you need to be in the hostel most of the day to wait to check in people and potential guests that walk in, without a booking. The family you stay with are very friendly and hospitable, and make you feel very welcome.
