Excellent hostel. The staff was really friendly, the rooms comfortable and everything you need for some good days in tsitsikamma is given. Useful recommendations for trips. The hostel is situated in storms river 10 km from the park.

I really liked staying here. The staff was friendly and very well informed about all availible activities. The hostel provided a few activities at the premises and the was well stocked and clean. The shared bathroom rooms were clean and easy to reach. Loved it and will go back.

Amenities clean and inviting, staff very friendly and helpful, tent 8 was comfortable, well-sheltered with enough privacy, close to storms river village so very convenient. The only issue for us was that we could hear the trucks on the highway at night despite their distance but I suspect this is everywhere in Stormsriver village

Enjoyed every minute of my stay. The staff are amazing, super friendly and extremely accommodating! Facilities are well looked after. Grounds are maintained well and there isn't plenty space to keep to yourself and be socially involved too. Great place!

All in all quite acceptable but what made it was the staff & front desk service who ran around with smiles on their faces, positive attitudes, catering to our every whim.. special compliments to Jessica who went out of her way to accommodate despite being under huge pressure, running the front desk, client liaison & the bar.. with finesse, gusto...

The place itself is decent and the people are really nice and quite. They offered a great breakfast meal. The place is also good for family as it has dorms with privacy which will be more suitable for families.

The only inconvenient was that we didn't have hot water to shower in our room. We had to use the common shower, however the host was really kind and eager to help us in whatever we needed. It's a great place

Great stay in a very cosy and open house. i enjoyed the dinner very much, as it felt like being home! The Internet wasnt working due to a storm, that was a bit difficult for us! Otherwise very friendly place!

It was good money value. Sadly bit noisy but that was expected from backpackers accommodation. Definitely great location and helpful stuff. Just maybe not for families with kids as you never know how loud your neighbors will be

As an older couple we were not sure if a backpackers would suit us. Well our uncertainties were put to rest. This is a lovely establishment and certainly worthy of staying at, we would have no hesitation going back. Sooner rather than later :)
