Nothando is very nice situated and close by a supermarket, main street and the beach. Good taxiservice offered to Robberg. Clean kitchen and dorm and a lovely bar to hang out in the evening. Had a lovely stay!

In one sentence : "YOu think your are on your grandma's place" We rarely give a mark like this but we really enjoy this stay. We were welcome by the friendly old couple who manage this place, a playfull dog and a lazy cat. We take our breakfast on the terrasse with the exotic birds being feeded by the place...

I had a memorable stay at Nothando Backpackers Lodge. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Dinner was a typical South African braai and is highly recommended. Will most definitely be back, but for longer.

Excellent rating overall. Accommodation with outstanding qualities. We were absolute amazed with white linen at a backpackers lodge! Secure parking was also a blessing! Will definitely come back!! We also appreciated the fact that we could dry our wet hiking gear and clothes at the washing line area.

We had a pleasant stay at Nothando. The check-in was good, the room spacious and clean and so was the bathroom. They have a bar with sat-TV. It's run by a super nice guy (thanks for showing Bayern Munich vs. Real Madrid!). Would book again!

I arrived unexpectedly late but was still warmly greeted. Good suggestions for restaurants and activities were provided (even at that late hour). The room was clean, the bed comfy and facilities all worked well. I just couldn't find the light switch for the bathroom so it stayed on all night! Good location and as a solo traveller, felt nice and...
