                                  Improvements:maintenance to shower heads is needed.its clean but the showers need to be better kept.you can add sanitizers for the toilet seats because its used by a lot of people.and standardize the bathrooms in that some have bathmats some don't sometimes etc.

                                  I have stayed at Amakaya several times and always find it clean, comfortable, and good budget accommodation. The weakness is there kitchen which is small for the number of guests, and one of the showers has a panel missing, but no real problem

                                  The service was good, staff was welcoming and very accommodating. The atmosphere was relaxing, it didn’t feel like we were on holiday. It was home away from home.

                                  We had a double en-suite room with our own balcony, which had a view of the river estuary, and breakfast of eggs and toast included for R600, good value.   The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff very helpful.   There is secure parking, with key-code entry and the hostel is close to the town centre.  There is some noise from the nearby road, but not significant, similarly with some younger guests - but it was Friday night.  The kitchen is smallish if many people wanted to use it.  Generally, though, very good.   Robin
