Well, in the middle of nothing lies this backpackers, as the cab drove up the dusty road i thought for sure he was giong to robb me.

He didnt, there is an old pumping station, and within it, small container like rooms. The owner, a surgeon from australia who is loud and somewhat grumpy, but really nice if yo share his passion; Sports! We sat up all nights watching soccer. And he is quite helpfull to, he arranged taxis and he even made spaghetti bolognese. "the best in africa" and it was pretty good, but at a charge. ;) so i give this place 4 stars, 3 for the backpackers and one for its owner Terry.

One of a kind hostel Feb 08, 2011
Run by a crazy, awesome, loud Australian and his French friend, this special hostel is very safe, has cheap bunks/tenting spaces, and laid-back artsy atmostphere. The building is an old water pump station on the hill in the city over 100 years old. Stayed here two nights--first while passing through to Lesotho. Camped and stayed up late watching football with the other guests from all over the world and then again on our way back through Bloem. Intending to camp, the Australian (warning: alcoholic, crazy man. But is fun if you're into drinking games, late-night stories) gave us a room for the price of camping and even a ride in his car to a shopping complex a bit too far to walk.
