Used it as a start point for hking the Otter Trail. Great Welcome - even though arrived at night. Efficient and freindly service, a bar for an evening drink and all the facitilies you could want - including a hearty breakfast and transport to the beginning of the trail. Highly reccomended.

We stayed for 2 nights in the dorm. Lovely downstairs living/communal area- more than enough space even though the backpackers was full during the time we stayed. We found the staff friendly and very accommodating, particularly when we had car trouble and needed somewhere to leave our luggage after check out time and while waiting for our lift to arrive....

We were only for two days at the Tsitsikamma Backpackers and it was great. The staff there is very friendly, they help you with everything, booking tours and recommend restaurants. It is very close to the Big Tree, where we drove with a guided Segway Tour from the Backpackers. Besides, the Canopy Tours are only a 5 minute walk away.... More

The common area is very welcoming with couches, TV and computer to use. The staff was very helpful and could offer advise, directions and make bookings. I would definitely recommend this backpackers to... More

Tsitsikamma backpackers is nicely located close to bloukrans bungy, tsitsikamma national park and storms river tubing. It is hardly 5 min drive off the highway. The room that we booked was spacious, clean and neat and so was the bathroom. The staff is very helpful, friendly and guided us in a nice way. The communal facilities are quite sufficient and...
