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.

Tsitsikama Backpackers is organised, friendly with a variety of accommodation options for budget travellers. It may not have the best views, but is very close to all the activities, sites and adventures on offer in the Garden Route.

We stayed at the Tsitsikamma Backpackers ahead of our departure on the Otter Trail. May is quiet season for the entire region so we had the whole place to ourselves just about. The staff are friendly and helpful and Andre and Michelle offered to assist with transfers to the national park. The only downfall was that there are no hooks... More

The staff is friendly and the backpackers has a nice atmosphere. Though our room was very noisy, since it was close to the common room. You can reach most activities ealily from the backpackers. All in all we had a nie stay and met very lovely people.

My husband and I stayed in this lovely place for three nights and it was amazing. The staff are very friendly & helpful and the rooms are really nice with clean with crispy duvets. Most importantly, the bar winds down around 10pm so that everyone can get a good nights sleep.
