The staff is amazing and very friendly. The views are so good you could sit and watch the ocean for days. Everyone that visits leaves with a smile and can't wait to come again. If you travelling the garden route be sure to stay a night or five you will not be disappointed.

The first time I went to this backapckers I threw my boyfriends 30th birthday party. The staff was so accommodating and thrilled to be apart of a celebration. Everyone had an amazing time and started a trend of us going there at least once a month. It's our home away from home, with an amazing view, incredible people, and so... More

Amazing scenery, the little cabins were fun and the road wasn't so bad. A lot of areas in South Africa don't have tarred roads so it wasn't a big deal really for us. 4 of us stayed, it was inexpensive and watching the sunset was perfect

Camp here and you will have the most stunning views over wilderness. Unfortunately the road up to the backpackers is horrible. Loud music late into the night and very limited bathroom and kitchen facilities. Spoil what could be great backpackers.

This backpackers can be such a gem, but bad management and not caring about the business & facilities makes it awful. Dirty (actually filthy) kitchen and bathrooms, cob webs everywhere in rooms, rude managers. They really need to go on Hotel (Backpackers) Nightmares / Hell...

Agree with all the points from the last few reviews. DO NOT BOOK IN HERE unless you wish to catch a nasty disease from A. the skanky bed sheets or B. the 2 bathrooms shared by all occupants or C. the utter filth that totally consumes this place as no one can be bothered to clean anything. 2 of the...

For my annual holiday break away, I joined a group of 12 friends for what we expected to be a fun filled stay in Wilderness. We are all well travelled and usually enjoy staying at Backpackers and have done so for years around South Africa. Despite the stunning location high up on a hill in Wilderness, the experience we had... More

My boyfriend and I stayed there for 4 nights. We expected a quite place with a nice view. What we found was definitely a nice view from top of the hill over the beaches and nice lagoons. The rest we found there was not so pleasing... The customer services lacked of care and was not really helpful with planning our... More
