My girlfriend arrived here on the Bazzbus to be greeted by James. James showed us around the hostel and the facilities on offer. He was friendly and informative and offered us help if their was anything we had forgotten. He did tell us about the food situation as their was no chef on that night. Annie the owner was super...

Not only was this the perfect place to stop along the infamous Garden Route for it's scenery and location, the staff, particularly the owner Annie, made the stay one I will never forget, for all of the right reasons! The place was very clean, the food was great and being located right on the beach, the backdrop was perfect! I... More

Beautiful place. The view on the ocean is amazing. Dorms and rooms are nice, clean and cosy. They have an outside terrace overlooking the ocean, which is great to chill and meet other travelers. Negative point: the double room I stayed in was a bit noisy because of the main road just behind and it was cold (winter time) -... More

Met up with a friend who was staying here and oh my! This is definitely on my itinerary when I come back to the area! Very friendly staff and Annie is lovely! Had a look around the property, very clean and has a homey feeling to it. I was there on a Friday night, the bar there is very nice... More

The Wilderness Beach House is a very nice looking backpackers given its price. Its location is prime, with wonderful views of the beach and mountains. It is kitted with a convenient kitchen, pool table, well priced bar, and mini restaurant. The beds on the other hand, even for a backpackers, are pretty bad. The mattresses are lumpy - a friend...

I have visited The Beach House regularly over the years and have always found it to be a great place to stay, clean, comfortable and plenty of sea views... stay here! Lots of outdoor stuff to do like hiking and canoeing... it's called Wilderness for a reason!

One the best places I've ever stayed! It has an excellent vibe, its hosts are nice and make you feel warm and well received. The food is amazing, the rooms have wonderful views and the beds are really comfortable. Annie, the host of this backpackers, is one of the most amazing women I've ever met! Juliana. Colombia

I would like to thank Lieze for a wonderful stay at the Beach House. The staff was anything but cold and unfriendly (like I've read in a previous review) ... on the contrary, you guys made me feel right at home. The location is absolutely perfect, close to the beach, shops and restaurants ... and the views from the dorms... More

This backpackers is perched right above Wilderness Beach, and is about a 10 minutes walk from the small village. Beautiful views, nice property, good location. The dorms were comfortable, roomy, and had an amazing sunrise view. However, the staff I interacted with were rather curt, unfriendly, and not forthcoming. They seemed knowledgeable on the area, but only once probed.

For experienced or dedicated backpacker who like non-party places with friendly staff, nice guest and yummi pizza from the stone-oven this is a great stay for a couple of days. Only the parking space is a little limited.
