Really enjoyed my 2 night stay at this place. The rooms are clean and beds very comfortable. You can order breakfast which was very tasty. The staff was nice but not as welcoming as the people in other hostels. The supermarket and different restaurants are in walking distance.

Coming to Tsitsikamma Backpackers was the most pleasant of surprises! Heinrich was very nice to all of us and Evette is probably one of the warmest and most welcoming people I've met in all of South Africa!
