“Swellendam Backpackers”
Reviewed December 9, 2008

We stayed one night at the Swellendam Backpackers in a double en-suite room with entrance via sliding doors.

The room was clean but very dark and the bathroom was below the standard I would expect from the price of the place. There were lots of mosquitos so I'd recommend taking repellent.

When we arrived their was no one in reception to meet us.

The area the backpackers is located is very quiet and residential, you'll have to walk 10 min to get to restaurants and 15-20 min to get to the high street.

There are some customer parking bays at the front of the house and parking on the grass verges.

The communal kitchen wasn't cooking dinner when we stayed but looked tidy and clean.
