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

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 :)

The reservation, booking , payment and quick response were excellent. Thank you. The reception by Heinrich was warm and friendly and we were treated as old friends. The communal ablution facilities is quite small, with limited space to dress, being in a passage and there is not mirror or place for a hairdryer. We felt safe and the place was...

We spent 3 lovely nights at Tsitsikamma backpackers in a family room. Staff were really welcoming and our 8 year old son enjoyed many games of table-football with new African-inspired victory dances ! The kayak and Lilo experience was extraordinary as was our hike ( and swim) at the waterfall. Come and enjoy it for yourselves

We "glamped" in the garden - although it was raining, the tents were warm, dry and cosy. The staff at the backpacker's couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, everything was clean and well organised, the optional breakfast was great value, and there are loads of interesting people staying over to chat to
