We were only here for an overnight stop while traveling along the Garden Route. The weather was dreary and I don't remember a time when it stopped raining. That being said, the staff was wonderful and let us switch from an outdoor tent to a room inside. The full service kitchen is great for making your own stuff if you... More

What I really liked about this backpackers is the friendly staff and cleanliness of the rooms. The entertainment area is very cool with a cash bar, pool table and indoor fire place. Also the view of the Tsitsikamma mountain is awesome. As a backpackers hostel I would definitely recommend it. The only problem I experienced was that the upstairs shower,... More

We booked the "delux" double room... Unfortunately this room is adjacent the bar so we did not get much sleep. The bar has a snooker table which was used until 2am in the morning. The clanking of pool balls & merriment was really loud. The room is in need of a bit of maintenance too. The shower tap came off... More

HI Clair, thank you for your feedback. Our apologies for the bar noise, our bar closed at 11 and the barman went home, we then checked on our cameras and clients went in on their own with own drinks. We really do apologize and will make sure it does not happen again! please do feel free to contact me should... More

We stayed just one night, but wished we could spend more time. We were 4 travelers, 2 in a private double room, and my sister and I in a tent. We all loved it. The room was spacious, clean and confortable, and the tent was awesome. The staff was very friendly, we even ordered a supper which was cooked just... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our week-end away at Tsitsikamma Backpackers. Relaxed and inviting, you feel quite at home and all amenities are provided whether making a meal or a cuppa. We went on the Segway tour and I must say it is positively addictive - you do not want the outing to end! Well worthwhile doing. Great bar and games room... More

Warm welcome, extremely very friendly and competent staff staff, clean and secure environment, basic but comfortable backpacker facilities, could do with an extra toilet or two. Very comfortable bed. Loud music in the bar in the evenings may not always be welcome by some but it's never played too late into the evening. Tsitsikamma is a sleepy attractive village near... More

I really liked staying here. All the staff were friendly and very helpful. It was also very quiet place. While they had their own bar there, it wasn't party scene. To do all our louder music partying we were encouraged to walk 3 min to another backpackers. This really worked for me because then you had the ability to get... More
