We stayed here on our way to Cape Town and on the way back to East London. I enjoy personal attention and boy, these guys have it in oodles. We were so well looked after I forgot it was a backpackers. We were offered a choice of chicken or Springbok potjie. Both were very good and there was no shortage... More

I spent a night here on November 11th 2014. I was there purely for the Bloukrans Bridge bungee jump the following day. I had a great stay and would recommend it to anyone who's frequenting the local area. I stayed in one of the mixed dorm rooms and the beds were comfortable enough for a nights sleep after a long...

Stayed here for only one night as a stop-over but it was a great stay. There's not a lot to say: Our room was spacious, nicely furnished and had a huge and very comfortable bed. Also, all the activities are quite close even though the Backpackers is a bit outside of the rest of the village. The place has a... More

Tsitsikamma B/P offers much: Excellent and competent service. We greatly enjoyed our stay and cannot say enough about the helpfulness of the staff. The owner drove us to the National Park round trip and gave us advice about the hike. An overall great experience.

This review is a bit of a 2 parter. We initially visited Tsitsikamma Backpackers in February 2013. We had a lovely time and were made to feel really at home by Denny, one of the staff. We stayed in the same room on both occasions (double room with shared bathroom). Denny was fantastic, he invited me to watch the football... More

Lovely location, clean and tidy room. We were a family of 4 staying over in a 4 sleeper but were only supplied with 2 towels, on inquiring about another 2 towels we were told we have to hire them. I also found the reception on the Sunday afternoon when we arrived less then friendly. I cant say i would return... More

Great stay and a wonderful tranquil setting. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. This is not a typical backpacker and deserve the four star rating. We will not hesitate to return to this establishment.

We passed through Tsitsikamma this July (2014) to do the Face Adrenalin Bungee Jump of the 216m bridge (a real recommendation) and there got the reference to the Tsitsikama Backpackers. We also wanted to do the offroad Segway tour with them that started early morning from there so it was a logistically wise decision. The location is great, hear the... More
