We arrived here to find out three cars had been broken into in the past week. They confused our booking and didn't have a room for us. Then decided to put us in a dorm in the other building. After being told they didn't have a security box for us but assured the place was safe and there was a... More

We stayed in this hostel for 2 nights when we went to Stellenbosch for a wine tour. We rented a room for four and it was in the house next to the building with the reception. The room and the bathroom were clean and the house even had a garden with a pool (that I personally didn't use cause it... More

The night before we arrived a car had been broken into right outside the place. We arrived and they 'mucked' up our booking so had to go to the place a couple of doors down the road. We dropped our stuff off in a private room after being told not to leave anything in the car. We went out for... More

This hostel was awful and I regret booking it at all. When I arrived there were random men sleeping in the lounge who obviously weren't guests. The door handle to the room I was given was broken. Also the room had no fan or aircon, only a gigantic window which had no bars on it for safety nor locks. The... More

We stayed here for 1 night in a private room. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room clean and homely. Unfortunately our car got broken into right in front of the backpackers during our stay that night and our clothes were stolen. The security camera outside apparently didn't wanna work when I asked the management to check the... More

This establishment is a must when in stellies. Friendly staff and good amenities. The rooms are great . only problem was lack of milk in the kitchen. I feel its a must if u offer free tea and coffee . also the showers are cold so be sure to shower before bed

To begin this review, I should emphasize that I have never visited a hostel before. Nonetheless, I knew that they are worth staying in for a short visit, and that they allow people to get to know one another. I booked Stumble Inn, excited to visit Stellenbosch. My friend and I were equally excited about the great deal that we... More

I wished I hadn't stumbled inn-to this hostel. The minute I walked in knew it was a party hostel, but at that stage, I thought 'it wouldn't be that bad'. I was wrong. For people who like a party hostel, I guess it's a good one. But if you are looking for good accommodation (which implies a good chance on... More

We stayed here as part of our Overland tour with Absolute Africa. We were in dorm rooms with other members of our group. The rooms were fine and beds comfortable enough. Bathrooms were pretty clean and showers were largely hot (with a couple of cold spells). There is free wifi in the lounge areas. There's also a well-stocked communal kitchen... More

Stayed in a private room but dorms and yard camping is available. It has a grat vibe, bar, common area, pool, pool table, and there is a pub crawl they organize. The wine tour they offer is easy and legit. Discount if you stay for 2 nights. Very friendly staff.
