5 friend & I stayed in Storm's River for one night. Arriving at Dijembe Backpackers, you immediately get the grasp of what kind of hostel it is: maybe not the most "clean" or "fashionable" hostel, but what an amazing atmosphere. Some walls are devoted as a guestbook to those who stayed in the hostel: you can see a lot of... More

The crew is very welcoming and good to have lots of fun with. We booked only one night, but wanted to stay longer. So they even arranged a place to sleep outside the backpackers cuz they were already fully booked. I would go back there anytime!

Stayed with these guys for 2 days in low season and although they do at first seem crazy they are lovely helpful people who are a pleasure to spend time with. The horses do roam into the bar and the goat will eat your food if you leave it in reach! But the location is lovely and they have a... More

We really enjoyed our stay in Dijembe backpackers. Every morning breakfast was ready with great pancakes, lemons fresh from the tree. The double rooms were clean and very nice. The atmosphere was cool, the staff were very kind and helpful, they made our stay in Stormsriver a succes! BTW: good music!

This place is a easy walk from the Highway next to Stormsriver. This place was by far my favourite backpackers in all of South Africa. The primary reason for this is the vibe that I am sure most other people will tell you about. Brad and Helena, the couple who run this place have worked hard to create the perfect... More

Good food, a really, really nice staff and a great surrounding. The place has a goat acting like a dog (besides the three real dogs), two horses, a free herb and fruit garden, a trusting bar, a bonfire nearly every day...
