A little noisy in the rooms because walls are thin but great staff, access to all informations, booking facilities. Matresses should be renewed because they are too weak, internet is not operatong very well. The National Park is amazing.

Our trip was fairly spontaneous as we only decided 5 days before to book accommodation. We only spent one night but wished we stayed longer. The Tsistikamma Backpackers was a pleasant surprise to what I had heard about other backpackers, they accommodate all types of travellers. Will definitely be returning for a longer stay

The staff was very friendly and helped organizing a shuttle service. The room (single room) was okay, but it was a little loud (you could hear other people very well walking and in the bathroom). Breakfast was nice, you can choose 3 different types

I did the Tsitsikamma hiking trail and organised with Jessica and Heinrich for a shuttle service from Storms River to Natures Valley when I finished the hike. After 6 days of hiking my family and I were looking forward to getting back to civilization ... but to our dismay the shuttle didn't arrive at the pre-arranged pick up point. On...

HI Ross I am sorry to hear about the incident and was on site the morning it happened. The shuttle was booked and is outsourced by a 3rd party who let us down, we were urgently trying to get another person to do the shuttle and once we did we called you but you had already gotten a lift from...

The place is very cozy! It feels like home. Breakfast is not included, but the one you can buy is very good. Warning: you should book your breakfast or dinner in advance. If you are going to arrive late, try to call them before to ask for dinner because otherwise you cannot get food in the village. the segway tour...

Amenities clean and inviting, staff very friendly and helpful, tent 8 was comfortable, well-sheltered with enough privacy, close to storms river village so very convenient. The only issue for us was that we could hear the trucks on the highway at night despite their distance but I suspect this is everywhere in Stormsriver village

Enjoyed every minute of my stay. The staff are amazing, super friendly and extremely accommodating! Facilities are well looked after. Grounds are maintained well and there isn't plenty space to keep to yourself and be socially involved too. Great place!

All in all quite acceptable but what made it was the staff & front desk service who ran around with smiles on their faces, positive attitudes, catering to our every whim.. special compliments to Jessica who went out of her way to accommodate despite being under huge pressure, running the front desk, client liaison & the bar.. with finesse, gusto...
