Erin is a great host, has a lot of suggestions for fun activitities and sites to visit in the neighbourhood and is a very enthusaistic and friendly person! Other positive things about this hostel: it has a very good vibe and nice atmosphere, clean rooms and spacious communal rooms, good food and very friendly people. A perfect place to stay when you want to discover the Southern tip of Africa.

We got stuck here on a roadtrip from Cape Town to Arniston. We extended our stay by 2 nights - was a great place to be. Arniston we visited as a day trip. We opted for a self-catering double room and a dorm room for our grown-up children. Great option - central, great friendly vibe, helpful and very informative staff and a clean and organised environment. The bar area is friendly and welcoming - always someone to chat to if you want company. For us older folk it was great that the noise levels are kept to a minimum after 23h00. Small pool is also really inviting and lovely for a dip. The resident dogs are great - especially Milo who accompanied us on many walks around town and on the beach. Their advice re Restaurants is great - Zuidste Kaap in Agulhas for Spare Ribs and Bella Luna in Struisbaai for their pizzas are highly recommended. Thank you all !! Your hospitality and professionalism are most appreciated !

Room Tip: Self-Catering double room - upstairs is great.

We stayed at Cape Agulhas Backpacker for two nights in our tent, what was for reasonable price. There are a clean amenities, showers with hot water and an extra clean, big and well stocked kitchen. Owners are super friendly and can give you good advise what to do in surrounding. You can also have breakfast, dinner or drink in a bar on place.

We stayed at Cape Agulhas backpackers for two nights just before New Years. We spent the first night in a dorm room and the second in a private room. We absolutely loved our stay here - the staff are so friendly and helpful, it is a two minute walk to the beach, and the facilities are great. I can't wait to come back soon!

One night was enough to love this place, and it's owner Erin is just the perfect hostel owner: A born local, with a lot of travel experience herself, who just got up one day with the genious thought 'why don't I open a hostel here?' -golden.
Me and my friends had the hostel almost to ourselves, giving it a chilled-out atmosphere above all. The bar in the common room seemed ready for action though!
The rooms with beautiful log-made beds and all have private bathrooms with great showers -and everything is perfectly clean.
If you have opportunity to go here, do it.
