I wasn't even staying here but from a ride up to meet the Baz bus with Arnu and Dirk (the incredibly friendly dog!) and Hayley then posting me the sunglasses that I left in the van, these guys couldn't have gone further out of the way to help me. Hayley is hilarious to boot. Beautiful place / excellent service.

Stayed here for one Night during our road trip across South Africa, This is an excellent backpackers, not too far out from Hermanus.

We didn't make use of the lounge facilities, but there is a... More

Nice, clean, friendly, and good parking, was my first impression. The place is very safe, and is situated in a quiet area. the room in the back we stayed in was a bit noisy in the evening, but we had no problem while sleeping. Thanx for the wonderfull stay!

I stayed in Hermanus after a friend recommended it. I stayed a Hermanus Backpackers and booked a shark cage dive through them which gave me a free night in the dorm. The backpacker house was funky and very clean. I stayed in an 6 man dorm room but both nights only had 2 other people with me. It was a... More

We recently stayed at the Hermanus Backpackers for a Bachelor's Weekend and they really surpassed all our expectations. The staff were really helpful and accommodating with all our needs and they provide a first class steak dinner on request. I'd definitely give them 2 thumbs up all round.

Lovely, welcoming place. Clean, kind staff. Maybe to expensive if you are not single, for more than one person there are better deals out there, but as a lone traveler this feels like home. Messy, communal breakfast, if you are social. Nice pub and pool.

My friend and I stayed here for one night while passing through town. The reception staff was friendly and very helpful at pointing out what the town has to offer. The room was large with lots of space and even a small locker to put your belongings (provide your own lock). The cons of the room where that it only... More
