I must admit that I had some doubts about this hostel, due to the so different reviews that I read on the Internet. Then, once I have spent there one night, I understood. In the same place where now there is the Monzi Budget Backpackers, there were another hostel which has been upgraded during the last months of 2015 by... More

I spent only one night here and would've stayed longer if I could. Immaculately clean and great facilities. The tents on the second floor were an excellent addition and very comfortable. The toilets were very clean and the kitchen well organized.

We had our own tent for 4 persons with Privat bathroom. Everything is absolute clean, staff is amazing. Always friendly and willing to help. The only negative thing is, that you have to be absolutely quiet after 10 pm. The security is very strict. Perfect location, nearby are lots of bars and restaurants. Thanks a lot, jessi

Henre1, Manager at Budget Backpackers - Saint Lucia, responded to this review

thank you very much for the kind reply. I must just say that the reason for no noise after 10 pm is that it is a tented accommodation an that noise carries quite far at night. The rule is just so that guests who want to sleep are not disturbed. We have no problem with guests sitting and chatting to... More

We stayed at Budget Backpackers expecting just that--a budget experience. We were quite blown away and pleasantly surprised to find that it is under new management (Monzi Safari Backpackers) and all amenities are brand new. We stayed in a double room which came with extremely clean, shared ablution blocks just a few steps away. Shared ablution blocks are really a... More

Great place, clean swimming pool, very well-equipped kitchen. They even have someone doing the dishes and there are towels by the pool! Very helpful and friendly personnel and good tours! We spent 3 nights in a room and 3 nights in a tent. Very good value for the price!

The only thing budget about this accomodation is the price! We stayed in the tented accomodation upstairs, the tent has a double bed (or twin beds) a fan (god send), and plug point in the room. The linen was clean and looked new. There was a wash line for our costumes outside the tent. The tent has a padlock on... More

Wow, I'm totally blown away by this amazing accommodation. Me and my hubby have been traveling all over South Africa and we prefer backpackers in general. I can honestly say that this is the best BP in SA! Upon arrival we were greeted by some very professional staff. The initial feeling you get when you walk in ''this looks legit''... More

Great Stay, Great Staff, Great SC areas. Two pools, one a little bit in the back more quiet than the one upfront. Very good kitchen equipment and bbq areas. Staff very helpful and very friendly. All over all great location!
