We lived in the Kruger Cottage. It is a very basic cottage with 2 rooms (one with a bunk bed and the other with a king sized bed) kitchen and bathroom. Bring your own towels, it comes at extra cost! The kitchen is very basic but fulfilled all its duties. Valley View has a superb location, being near must-see waterfalls... More

A clean, beautiful backpackers, well-equipped kitchen and friendly stuff. We had one of the small rooms without bathroom. Outside there's a beautiful terrace...a great place to eat, drink a glass of wine and meet the other guests.

My partner and I stayed at Valley View Backpackers for two nights. I had previously been in touch with Melinda via email. Melinda was very helpful and quick in answering all of my questions! The reason I have given Valley View 3 stars is for a number of reasons. A few staple items were not provided - the bathrooms did... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and although it was very cold (1400-1600 meters high and winter season), we had a good time. Excellent stop before heading into Kruger, but also to explore the wonderfull area with Blyd river canyon as absolute must see. Very friendly staff, well equiped kitchen, basically the only thing that's missing is a bar. So don't... More

The hostelowners are very friendly and helpful. Location is great, very near to Gods window and the Blyde river canyon. Nice kitchen, good beds... In winter an extra blanket would be nice though. It really gets freezing in the cabins. But the atmosphere is very homey, friendly and relaxing. A braai is there. And the laundry service does great work!... More

When me and my friend finally pulled over into they private and secure parking lot, we found much more than you would expect from a hostel. The nice patio, a perfectly equipped kitchen, nice living room and spotless room and... More

The placement of Valley View Backpackers is lovely, the view is definitely amazing! Melinda and Joseph are very helpful. We stayed in one of the cabins which are nice and homy and feel like the real African style. Graskop is nice and central on the Panorama Route so easy access to all the great views :).
