We've spent 2 nights at Valley View and would have stayed longer if only the weather would have been better these days.. We really loved our rondavel with its own kitchen, bathroom, living room and comfortable bedroom - a little bit off the other accommodation and situated in a beautiful garden. Like that, we had our own private house, still... More

Graskop Valley view is a small and quite hostel. Bedrooms are ok if you are not looking for luxuries. The great point of this place is his owners. Joseph is better than a tourist information bureau, he gave us some valuable advices to visit the valley and the places recommended where really stunning. Our tals with him after the trip... More

Nice and quiet place for backpackers. Except that I arrived a foggy raining day and it was freezing in the dormitory and the bathroom. But the second day was sunny and everything was perfect. Wifi is not included in the rooms price but total price still cheap

I stayed here with my dad and brother on a road-trip from Cape Town along the Garden Route and up to Kruger. The backpackers overlooks the hills and is about an hours drive from the gates to Kruger. We had a fantastic time here enough to extend our stay. We met students from Deutschland and American Peace Corps volunteers and... More

Stayed in the rondavel and had a wonderful time. Great spot to visit the panorama route and Blyde canyon. Melinda and Joseph were absolutely lovely hosts! Excellent value for money and recommendable to anybody staying in the region. We stopped here on our way to Kruger.

Our stay at Valley View is in our top 3 of best stays in 6 months of traveling the world. Seldom did we feel more welcomed by or connected to the beautiful owners Melinda and Joseph. And their lovely staff member Lily. We will never forget her "Hellooo, my darling!" in the morning. Hard working Joseph, ofttimes with hammer and... More

This hostel has a really nice atmosphere. The owners are really helpful and around if you need them. We stayed in an ensuite double. The shower door was a little wonky but we got it working..The bathtub was the biggest I've ever used. Everything was clean. We also spent some time chilling in the nice livingroom / hangout area. Thanks... More

The Valley View Backpackers recently changed owners. I don't know how the previous owners were like, but the two people running this place now are amazing. The backpackers is situated outside the 'city centre' of Graskop and is really quiet & calm. There is a nice view over the valley, and the place gave us a real homey-feeling. We spent... More
