I stayed in this backpacker for three weeks along with twelve colleagues and friends as we were working at a local school. Located only five minutes walk from the shore and restaurants. The rooms (single rooms and dorms) were spartan but clean and functional. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and allowed us to feel 'at home' for these... More

Vey good price, fine location, decent rooms, friendly staff. But crawling with enormous cats everywhere. Literally. Very cute dog also; unfortunately it uses the lawn as toilet. Add 2-3 stars if you really adore living among pets.

On my way back from Plettenberg Bay to Port Elizabeth to catch my flight, I stopped for a night at King's Beach Backpackers. Located close to the Boardwalk in Summerstrand, it is convenient for hitting the beach and the casino. Its a decent place with great value for money, which is good for a short stay.

This a small, friendly hostel close to the beach at Humewood. The dorms are adequate, comfortable ad clean. There is an outside bar and drying area. Bathrooms are clean and the kitchen though small is well equipped. It is 5 mins from the beach and 20 mins walk to the centre of P.E.

We stayed 4 nights at Kings Beach Backpackers before heading along the garden route, route 62 and teh west coast. We got a nice ensuite double room, there were 3 other doubles and plenty of dorm beds. It was good value and clean. Not a big party place, which we liked. David and the other staff were really helped us... More
