We supply speciality meals and our daily Ostrich BBQ is very popular with an Ostrich fillet kebab(sosatie) done South African style on the fire, with ostrich sausage, jacket potatoes, crispy green salad and fresh bread rolls. Vegetarians can enjoy a vegetable lasagne or a delicious spinach and feta dish with cream cheese topping For breakfast during July until April every year we supply ostrich egg DIY style free of charge. We serve a full breakfast for the more comfortable traveller.
Take time out in our comfortable lounging room, so come for a chat, catch up on your emails or watch television. Relax with some cool drinks or party the night away in our pub. We also have a pool table here for you to show off your skills against fellow travellers. The bar is located away from the hostel so you won`t be disturbing the night`s slumber of the other guests as you party on.
Cool down, hang out, or just chill in the Splash-Pool. This works overtime during the summer and everyone loves it, especially with the girls bronzing their bodies in the sun.

This charming Victorian home was built in 1853 and declared a National Monument in 1988. It captures all the character and heritage of a bygone era. Oakdene is situated on the main tourist route and walking distance from the town centre.
