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

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

We had a great time there. Our double room was nice and the staff very friendly and helpful to plan the hikes or whatever. Also a shuttle service to any of the cool locations is available Stormsriver is a very small village with approximatly 2 bars and 3 restaurants but the hiking there was great!

Only spent one night here but loved the place. Stayed in one of the ready erected tents and it was very comfortable. Showers and wifi good too. Really enjoyed the bar area at night and playing pool. Wish I'd been able to stay longer

Stayed at Tsitsikamma Backpacker for a long weekend. We enjoyed the stay. The Backpacker got a nice outside Braaistation. Only problem was inside as it was winter and we got 1 rainy day. No heating in the living room.

The staff is friendly, professional and helpful. I really enjoyed my first stay in Storms River Village and will definitely be returning. It's a pity that I had such a short stay and look forward to enjoying your accommodation and hospitality once again.
