We booked one of the family units and were happy with the room.

The manager was very friendly and the rooms were always clean. It isn't very modern but it is modest and well kept. Beautiful garden and adequate parking. We definitely enjoyed our stay, although there isn't much to do in the area, we could drive to the beach.

I definitely recommend this place. Thank you.

Stayed: June 2016

We really felt welcome, as part of the family, Ricky is truly a wonderful host. The breakfasts were a delight. The accommodation was awesome and we will be definitely coming back to visit. We were able to get to the local shopping centres by foot. The Eliasov family.

Received a warm and friendly welcome at our arrival. The establishment is comfortable and clean and Ricky, our host, made made sure we were comfortable. The establishment is close to shops and restaurants and access to the highway is pretty straightforward. I will definitely be staying there again in future.

I truly enjoyed my three - night - stay at Khululeka Backpackers. The owner, Riekie, was very friendly and made me feel very welcome.
The beds were very comfortable (exceptionally!) and the garden was amazing! I'd recommend this as a perfect place to stay over or, even better, spend a few days.
The whole area is a peaceful one, however the shops and restaurants are not far away.
A very big thank you to Riekie and her sons who were very friendly and accepting of the guests

Room Tip: Any room is a good chooicve.

I found my stay at Khululeka very relaxing and comfortable .Which is exactly what i needed after a long day at work..The owner ensured i had all i needed for my week long stay .she and her stuff are amazingly friendly giving one the feeling of being among friends rather away from home.i would definitely stay there again whenever i am in Hillcrest
