Hostels

              : The hostels in South Africa give you the means to cook for yourself a lot more than other countries. Whilst it's not expensive by any means, it is still more expensive to eat out then to go to a supermarket. Just make sure you clean up after yourself to not cause any arguments.
It is more common to stay in a room with a few other people then to have a room to yourself, but this just means you get to meet more people, even if you odd one is a bit weird. Lockers are provided at most hostels, as they know that all of their guests can't be trusted. 
Although most of the hostels were quite old (run down) buildings converted into places for us to stay, they all had a lot of character and always felt safe. One hostel in Storm River was more like a log cabin, set in beautiful scenery. 
The staff are very keen to tell you of the best things to do and see nearby, so I would take on board their local knowledge.
Depending on your budget, do some research on the best places to stay. Cities were more expensive and the rural parts were much cheaper. At the rural Coffee Bay we even paid £3.20 for a 2 day surf lesson and lunch.
£15.00 - £50.00 for a stay
