we have been to the jungle monkey backpackers for two nights during our journey through SA this November 2012. In our opinion a well kept and clean accommodation that is worth to be visited for a stay in Port St. Johns. The room called "monkey view" with a great view to the jungle and the surrounding mountains from the appendant spacey veranda was amazing. The own open air shower under banana leaves was breathtaking. The owners Mike and Hennie were so friendly, helpful and really cared. They take you up every evening to an airstrip and to the cliffside of mount thesiger to enjoy a sundowner with a perfect overview to the river and its mouth. We also did a halfday-trip with their inhouse-guide across the river and along the beautiful beaches to a nearby xhosa-village - very nice and funny !!
This accommodation deserves really a great recommendation. Thumbs up.
Many greeting from Germany from Uli & Gerhard
