This was a gem to find. I drove around Oudtshoorn and had a look at a couple of B&Bs and was not impressed and then I stumbled across this one. This is more a Backpackers than a B&B as breakfast is not included. I had the double en suite garden cottage which was spacious and comfortable and private which was... More

We had a lovely stay here. Great beds, showers and other facilities (such as a very nice pool, and garden with hammocks) and very friendly staff. The house is very clean and beautifully situated and furnished. All in all great value for money!

It is hard to believe that this place is priced at backpacker levels – lovely rooms with huge comfortable beds, a sociable braai area, friendly owner, and easy drive to the local attractions. Great discounts on tickets and tours too.

On our way from Victoriabay to Robertson we've decided to stay in Oudtshoorn for a night. One call and the cottage was booked. The owner showed us around and there is definitely nothing to moan about this place. Nice and quiet place. Good value for money

Karoo Soul Backpackers and Cottages probably is one of the best hostels I’ve ever been in my life. Clean, confortable, with an unveliebable breackfast, is ideal if you have to stay over Oudtshoorn. A great back yard and an awesome swimming pool. The rooms are incredible, and the beds are the best. Confortable matrices and edredons. Is and old house... More

Driving into Oudtshoorn one sees this beautiful old house and it draws you to its front door. The owners are extremely friendly and show you around the whole place. I stayed over in one of the dorm rooms which was neat and clean. Extra blankets were available in each room. There is a fully equipped kitchen which makes it easier... More

Wonderful place. It's a nice old house with a great garden and nice view from the veranda. The rooms are amazing. Wooden floors, one if them has got a fireplace and the bed sheets are kind of luxury. Last but not least it's fairly cheap.

Typical countryside backpackers which feels like a bed&breakfast and offers nice rooms (bit cold though but enough blankets), good cooking facilities and pleasant staff. The only downside was the wifi, it required logging in many times. But it did the trick. The city itself was quite small, we can recommend visiting an ostrich farm (ostrich massage was hilarious) and going... More
