The hostel has a reputation for making you feel welcome and is enthusiastically run by the owners and their manager. The old building with all its gleaming wood and warm, atmospheric charm is a stones throw or a quick stomp away from inexpensive and traditional African restaurants, night spots, jazz clubs, pubs, post office, banks, antique shops, 24 hour grocery shopping and flea markets. The owners are fanatical about cleanliness and all the staff are friendly and go out of their way to help you. JIKELEZA LODGE offers you a variety of accommodation. There are single rooms, double rooms (Double bed) and twin rooms (2 single beds), 3, 4 and 5 bed family/group rooms, dorms and camping. The hostel is never crowded and their dorms only have a maximum of 7 beds and at times are smaller. The kitchen is fully fitted so that you can whip up a quick meal or cook up a storm.
JIKELEZA LODGE has its own in-house travel desk and is the best place to get advice on anything to anywhere. They can arrange day trips to Addo Elephant National Park, lion safaris to Schotia, city and township tours, Baz Bus and Intercape Inter City Bus tickets, historical and heritage tours, transfers and overland trips and tours anywhere in Southern Africa. They also have specially priced accommodation and tour packages for backpackers and you can save quite a lot if you take one of these.

We have just upgraded our hostel, putting in new rooms, tiling the downstairs bathroom, tiling the back veranda and replanting grass. The hostel has been painted as well. We are on going in safety now having bannister rails on all our steps. We also separate glass and tins into separate drums.
