Visited Dijembe Backpackers in January. It's location is good for visiting Tsitsikamma National Park where you can do some hikes and other outdoor activities. The first thing we noticed was that there was a good ambience amongst the people staying at the hostel and the staff which is always good to see at a backpackers. Facilities were however poor. It...

When we saw the place from the outside and after reading the reviews we were skeptical. But after we entered 4 of us said that we must stay another night because its amazing. The people here are great. The only 2 problems are the 2 cats that makes it an allergic person nightmare and the bugs so take some spray... More

Giving this place 4 stars with the recommendation that when you visit you take a chilled out vibe with you. We read mixed reviews so arrived a bit dubious but altogether had a good time on our 2 nights stay. Very good location for a base to explore Storms River and good value for money. It is an eco lodge,... More

He will jump on the bed if he has the chance! From there they will take you to all beautifull things to do in Tsitsikamma. We had... More

I stayed here for only one night (wish it was more!) and I loved the place. First the location is beautiful, your a few minutes drive from the highest bungee in the world (which is a must!) and a tiny village which does the best pizza ever! Everyone who works here are so accommodating and great fun. The place is... More

Great, relaxing and innovative place to sleep over. Lovely environment, even our bedroom, the cameleon, fitted perfectly in this vibe. Free pool table, djembes and coffee and tea was available to use. And also don´t forget about the free pancakes as breakfast!

After many recommendations from friends and family, i called the Dejembe back packers to make a last minute reservation during peak season. I was amazed at how incredibly accommodating the Dijembe staff were and i am exceptionally excited for the stay!
