    I absolutely loved this Backpackers. Perfect for starting or ending your trip in SA. It is in a quiet and secure area. Due to slowed down tourism I was the only international guest, what I didn’t mind, because I had lots of fun meeting the South Africans staying here. Special thanks to Cameron the manager, he is such a kind, helpful and awesome person!!

    Staff Sansha and Ray are amazing. They discussed my itinerary and made suggestions to make my stay comfortable and sensible. Location is great for being close to the airport, but very far from literally anything else. There's nothing to walk in the neighbourhood, but shuttles from staff are offered to get groceries. Sansha always available to book tours too. Meals are offered so long you ask ahead of time, and Ray is a great cook. Lounges are welcoming and comfortable.

    Of word that can describe this hostel is Amazing, at first my taxi driver could not find it at night (so i recommend taking the shuttle that the hostel it self offers, it is really cheap). The hostel camp is very camp/farm style still being a hostel, with options to normal rooms and tents (with is a amazing idea), the staff there is AMAZING, they are so friendly like i never seen anywhere, they offer shuttles to everywhere you want to go and are available to help with anything you need.

    Very Good

    We only stayed one night to go to the airport and it was perfect. Nevertheless there's absolutely nothing around, so if you want to stay longer you will have to take an uber every time. Dinner VERY overpriced, we paid R145 for a braai with some simple salad, if you compare it to € is not so much but compared to Joburg prices it was too much. Simple and functional room, with ants crawling around, but fine according to price.

    Did not actually stay at the place as they cancelled our booking without any notice—hence my poor rating. Got to the hostel and there was no one there. When we finally got a hold of them they said they closed the place due to a covid case a couple days ago. So we were left stranded with our bags at night time. I understand the covid situation, but they gave us no notice that our booking was cancelled nor did they offer us any help or any alternative of where to stay. Absolutely ridiculous.
