Butha-Buthe Hostel / Ha Thabo Ramakatane is a wonderful way to get a taste of rural Lesotho living while brushing up on your Sesotho. There is a separate building next to the family home with two rooms and a small kitchen with a table and gas stove. While there's no running water or electricity, a nearby well supplies fresh, cool water. It is located just 4 kilometers from Butha-Buthe on a rough dirt road.
To get there, turn south off of the A1 onto the dirt road (S 28 46.078 E 028 15.090) at the sign for St Paul's High School - about 100 m west of the Caledonspoort border post road. Continue 1.2 km, turn left for 200 m and then right and continue 2.6 km to the nondescript house. If you get lost, just ask around; people in the village are used to directing lost foreigners to the location.
