The best part is the home-cooked meals, particularly dinner. This place checks all the other boxes you might seek (good price, dorms and private rooms available, free wi-fi, free assistance with you trip plans). Other places *might* have slightly better rates and/or luxuries, though I doubt their meals are as good.

We stayed here for 1 night as we were heading to Jeffreys Bay. The location in Storms river was great but what stood out the most was the staff. Candice, Jessica, Heinrich and Yvette were all lovely, Warm and friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them. They were informative and always smiling, making us feel very welcomed. We will...

My friend and I only had one night here but so glad we came. The staff in particular Candice, Jessica, Heinrich & Yvette were so lovely. Organised, friendly and welcoming. The grounds are extra special for a hostel and we even had a mountain view from room. Breakfast was lush and their Braai was really yummy too. A must stay!!!

The Tsitsikamma Backpackers is really easy to find right at Storms River Village. It is a gated property, the gate is open though during the day, so there are nö difficulties to enter. The beginning of the Otter Trail is a 10minute drive away. Bloukrains Bridge for bungee jumping about 30 minutes. The Staff was great. Communicative, friendly and very... More

A wonderful place to stay with super comfortable and clean rooms, or why not try 'glamping' (that's posh camping). The wi-fi was excellent and we could get it in our room. The staff were very friendly and helpful in regards to organising activities. The home of the Segway Tour, a fun day out in the Tsitsikamma Forrest. I will definitely... More

We stayed for only one night while traveling from Addo National Elephant Park and Knysna and it was perfct for this. It wasn't very busy but the manager was still really infested in making sure everyone had a good evening. The private room was nice and big with a great bed.

We stayed for 3 nights in a very nice and clean room. The service was perfect, very friendly and attentive. They also helped a lot with getting my jacket back that i left in a previous hostel. We can only recommend it!

Nice accommodation with bar and decent cooking facilities. Friendly staff. Breakfast was very good. Would definitely stay here again. Recommend walking in the forest nearby and trying the microbrewery down the road. The Village Inn serves great meals.

Very comfortable. Friendly staff. Good service at breakfast. Clean ablution facilities. Pool table and coffee machine. Good idea to charge extra for some facilities like fancy coffee machine and extra items at breakfast instead of including it in general price. I stayed in the tent which was very cold in the morning but blankets were provided, but would still recommend... More
