Thank you for a very enjoyable stay. Thank you Rashieda & Janine for the activities that you booked & making us feel so welcome. You are true stars. Free breakfast, Wi-Fi & dvds a big plus. In walking distance of a number of restaurants, the favourite being Kaai 4 & the London Bus. Great views.

Jeanine, who hosted us, was really nice and friendly. She gave us a lot of tips of what to do in the city as well around the garden route. The room was big and comfortable (We stayed in a private room) and the bathrooms also clean. The breakfast was simple but nice, eggs and toast. Location is also good as...

This is a nice hostel with a cool hangout area (pool table, small bar, tv and sofas). We stayed in a private room, the room was big but the walls are very thin, felt like the people in the next room were standing right beside us. Janine the host was amazing, helped us book all the activity and was extremely...

This is quite a find. It's right in the centre of town opposite the tourist information office. The place is on the first floor, so gets a nice sea breeze. The sitting room is huge and accommodates two tents! The kitchen is also large and well equipped and the staff were so friendly, chatty and helpful. Excellent.

Perfect location for a backpackers, shops are easy walking distances. Beach is walking distances. Staff were amazing and so helpful even we I changed my dates a few times. Washing available and free breakfast helps a cuts cost. Good value for money. Highly recommended a stop at Mile Crunchers if you are in Mossel bay.

Stayed here for three days. Premises are spacious, aesthetically pleasing, and comfortable. Staff went ABOVE and beyond to help us in every aspect of our trip. The complimentary breakfast is great and kitchen facilities are more than sufficient. Would definitely stay here again if we returned to Mossel Bay. Thanks again MC!!

Staying with my partner for just over a week, we quite enjoyed out time at Mile Crunchers. We actually opted to stay in the shared dorm for a few nights, which was fun, we met very interesting and friendly people. We then took a private room, and were comfortable. Overall, the establishment is quite rustic, but open, spacious, and cozy....
