“HOME AWAY FROM HOME”
Reviewed January 23, 2014

What an experience! Accommodating, friendly, clean, relaxing and most of all the people running the place! From the moment you walk in the door until you give your last step out of the door you feel at home and is treated with respect, friendliness and made comfortable. We were a family group and every single person from young to old was treated the same. We love the experience!

Very nice place, brand new & clean. But the amazing part of the backpackers are the people who run the business. Young people who love music and are integrating you to their social life. I love them!!

Pumbas Backpackers is such a comfortable and happy experience! The vibe is light-hearted and relaxing. The backpackers itself is decorated in such a colourful and creative fashion, with little interesting things everywhere. With friendly service (from the people, to the dogs) , a lovely garden and swimming pool, as well as comfortable (and clean!) amenities I will definitely refer anyone to visit Pumbas!
