There isn't anything I could recommend about this backpackers. They do organise a 'value' wine tour. Kitchen is adequate, communal areas are adequate and the rooms are adequate. You get the picture....

Starting with the positives the lodge is cheap, has 6 bunk rooms and good hot water. Opportunities lie in warming the place up as it is cold and the quilts on the beds insufficient for winter temperatures. The wifi is average and all accommodation is shared bathroom. The staff were helpful, arranging excursions and helping us order in food.

This place has a very homely feel to it. The staff are fantastic and were able to advise on things to do at night. They also joined in on conversations and made for a fun night. I wish we had more time in Stellenbosch because place was great. Laundry service was prompt and the WiFi was fast! Thanks for a... More

Stumble Inn is the perfect place to go if you want to experience the wine lands and not break the bank. It’s a great location, just a minutes’ walk from all the trendy restaurants and wine bars of down town. They also run a great wine tour! The backers itself has a lively bar and a nice garden to chill... More

This was my 3rd stay at Stumble Inn as it is in a great location for transport by train and exploring town. The staff were friendly enough without being anything special. The amenities are very good, lovely showers, a swimming pool and a good kitchen for self-catering. Unfortunately they didn't have a key for our room when we checked in... More

My husband and I stayed at Stumble Inn many years ago as students and camped. This time we booked a private room. I was a bit nervous to stay as there are quite a few bad reviews on the place. When we arrived the staff were friendly, the place was clean. The room was really clean, neat and comfy. We... More

We arrived here to find out three cars had been broken into in the past week. They confused our booking and didn't have a room for us. Then decided to put us in a dorm in the other building. After being told they didn't have a security box for us but assured the place was safe and there was a... More
