Friendly staff and they had everything you'd need. Enjoyed the small pool and the central location. The negatives were that our bedroom window faced out into the road so it wasn't very private and the one shower had no hot water. Be careful of the...More

Hermanus Backpackers is absolutely lovely! The people are great, the common area facilities clean, and our private double room was a steal at the price. There's nothing 'backpacker-ish' about this place, it's more B&B. Totally worth it!More

Yes, there’s a shuttle service. It’s R100 per person, each way. Just let the backpackers know you’re arriving with the Bazbus, they’ll organize everything for you.

Hi Andrea, thanks for your message. We don't have air conditioning, generally not needed as evenings are usually quite bearable even in summer. We have plenty of parking though. Kind regards, Hayley
