The first month of 2018 has already flown by and we are left wondering how on earth it zoomed off so quickly! We would like to thank all of our awesome crew members and guests for helping us to kick off the year in such a great way. With February already in full swing we just know that it is going to be a month filled to the brim with rugby 10’s madness, sunny summer days and not forgetting all the other antics you guys get up to when you stay with us.

In the blog post we would like you to join us in congratulating our crew member of the month, Sipho Sibanda for winning January’s award! Sipho is our friendly housekeeper and the reason why our public spaces look gleaming and glistening. We are super chuffed with his motivated and hard working nature. Despite only working at the hostel for two months, Sipho is already proving to be a vital member of our team. Thanks for doing such a great job – keep it up!

Please read below to get to know more about our top man Sipho:
