Our initial booking was messed up so I had to down grade from a room with an en suite to a tent. This seemed like a good option at the time until we had to listen to dogs barking in the location all night. The staff was very friendly and helpful otherwise.

Staff is always there to assist and arrange bookings with other local attractions/activities. The accommodation is not only appropriate for student backpackers but even seniors and families can stay here.

One of the better night sleep that I got in SA, all thanks to the fan they put in the room. Only for that they deserve 5*. Beautiful building with seagway activity in it. Cheap bar with a very nice bartender

We did a trip from P.E all the way down to Tsitsikamma and back to the Cape. We were met with the owners of the Backpackers personally with a very friendly and welcoming manner . We were very impressed with how clean the place was and how it didn't feel at all like a "backpackers", but more like luxury laid... More

we received friendly and prompt service. we stayed in the tented garden units which was clean, well aired and cosey. the location and amenitities were adequate and convenient. we enjoyed the communal area facilities and the units. least enjoyed the rain (unlucky). overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Tsitsikamma Backpackers and will definitely consider going again.

Staff were friendly and helpful, accommodation was great, place was clean and dorm was great. Made some amazing friends. It's not a party place, but more a pleasant lodge if you travelling in the area and need a place to stay.

We had a double room with own bathroom which was just perfect! We stayed there 2 nights for New Year's Eve and had a great evening with local people and other tourists. The staff organised a Braii for us which was lovely! And there are lots of activities around, even hiking trails in Stormsrivier directly.

Tents are small, but clean, well maintained and basically all you need. The surroundings are beautiful and it was very quiet and peaceful. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Will definitely visit again.
