We had a fantastic time at Tsitsikamma Backpackers. We stayed in the tents and they were fabulous - clean, comfortable mattresses and clean ablution facilities.
The access to activities or information was spectacular!
I highly recommend staying here :)

Very good price - quality.
Staff is helpful and friendly.
Shared showers and toilets are fine (we slept in the outdoor tents - low price).
Bar is fine.

The rooms and all facilities are great, I hardly sleep that good at home. The staff takes care of the guest very well, make suggestions on activities. The offer breaker and dinner on request. I'll be back

The venue and price was ideal for our purposes. Good location - close to Tubing activity. Perhaps as consideration - the breakfast was more expensive than the local restaurant and wasn't as extensive.

The friendliest, helpful staff; excellent breakfast; the mattress in the double room is past its due date. Unfortunately the TV's location is a problem. The sound from the TV is bothersome in the upstairs rooms.

The hostel close to the Tsitsikamma National Park is very good for the different activities. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We spend a nice time in this place. The rooms are clean and well equipped.
